Sandy Carlson said...

Beautiful images, Mary. I have often watched or listened to online recordings of his delivering some of his speeches. A marvelous person, to be sure. I was born at a time when these marvelous people were being rubbed out. What a time!

Thanks again everyone!

I was 9 years old in 1967 and until today, I had no idea he'd been considered as a candidate for the Presidency. Wow, what a different country this would be now had he run and won. Instead, hatred took him from us all far too soon.

Hi Teach -- Glad you came, thanks for the good words. Jenna is my mid granddaughter, and is a college student.

I would have like to have set in on one of your blogging classes. I stumble through.

In common with you, I also taught. My courses were in business at San Jacinto College in Pasadena, Texas. Sam Cassell and Steve Francis, both professional basketball stars now.

Our newphew is returning home from Afganistan tomorrow. You've been there (Iraq).
