Reason # 1 for loving the Atlanta Ward

We love the Spirit we feel in the ward. Some visitors have said the same including Glenn Beck and his friend who visited last week. They even joked that Jermaine (the bishop) looked like the president of the teachers quorum (14-15 year olds). Everyone cracked up! and Gladys Knight visited last week!

Obama Makes History

I don't vote. Only Because I am not yet a citizen. If I did I would register as an independent. I am not sure who I would vote for. I reflect on the 15th amendment and the voting rights act of 1965 and how the Jim Crow laws still stripped black people of their right to vote. And here we are in 2008 and a black man is running for president. We also have Hilary making history as the first woman to come so close to being a nominee. What are some key issues for you?
