Weighing In

So, until today I was pretty much uneffected by the "Birther" movement and whether our president was a citizen or not.  I viewed it as just another thing for people to complain about instead of working to better the country instead of trying to be divisive.  Then, I came across an opinion letter in the local paper.  See for yourself.

Here's the thing, by this persons logic, my own citizenship would be called into question.  Ummm, I hate to burst his bubble but I'm very proud of the fact that my father immigrated here from El Salvador.  I claim my heritage with great pride.  I also know that people like my father are what makes this country great in my opinion.  On the other side of the spectrum, my mother's family can be traced to native americans.  That's right, before the 'ol Mayflower docked.  I am equally proud of that heritage. 

Good gracious, people.  Suck it up, put on your big boy pants and support the man.

Support the March of Dimes!

Once upon a time I met this girl named Shonda.  I was 17ish and she was 18ish.  So yeah, that had to have been just a couple years ago.  :)  We got to spend the summer together at Windermere where we worked and played.  We had no idea then the directions our lives would take us.  We weren't thinking about marriage or babies, we were thinking about our tans and friends.  We were sharing a community bathroom, not thinking about mortgage payments.  We couldn't have known then what kind of wives or mothers we would turn into.  Well, you know about my 2 blessings.  Shonda is the mother of 4 blessings.

Here are a couple of video montages that give you an introduction to her March of Dimes Team: 2 Here, 2 In Heaven.   It also gives you an idea as to why I am so blessed to have known her and call her my friend.

Please, if you can, please support the March of Dimes and this team.
