Of Sorrow and Grief

June 25, 1996 - January 15, 2009

Of Amazement, Humility, and Gratitude

The hope was for 5,000 scarves to give to the 2009 World Winter Special Olympics Games (February 6 - 13 in Boise, ID). Any extras would be given to volunteer workers and dignitaries. Word on the street is that over 26 ,000 (and maybe more) were received. My three seem very humble, but it proves small things add up to make a big statement.

Of Joy, Hope, and Excitement

I'm so happy to see this day while still young. I can't wait to see what barriers will be broken by a man of mixed race as President. I am encouraged and hopeful about the future, despite the bleakness with which the prior administration tried to grind into the populace.

I have witnessed so many barriers going down in my life...
-the falling of Russia's iron curtain
-fall of the berlin wall
- I saw the segregation of pre-'64 and the civil rights movement
- and now this!
It is amazing how the world has traveled... yet in so many other ways is just the same....
