Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to say it was great seeing you all at the reunion (some for the first time in thirty years). Never really socialized with any of you before but wow-you're alright peeps. Hope we can do this again in five years.

I bet everyone remembers where we were on 9/11/2001 the day we were attacked by militant Muslim terrorists. It was a day I will never forget. That day was filled with shock, tragedy and heroism. The shock I personally experienced watching the second plane full of innocent people slam into the world trade made me so upset I left work and went home. The shock that there were other planes with innocent Americans being used by despicable people whose aim was to "punish" our freedoms and sucesses as a nation and the tragety of lives lost and fire fighters killed responding to what is now known as ground zero was a horrific sight. All those killed as well as the group of passengers that took out the flight headed to the White House or the Capitol that crashed in Shanksville, PA were hero's as well.

As a Nation, we can not become complacent with regard to protecting this great country. This was not just "a terrorist" act. This was a wake up call that our home soil can be hit by enemy. Unfortunately, as our technology advances to protect us, so too, does the technology of the enemy.

September 11 should be a time of rememberance a time of prayer and a time to remind us to be ever vigilant.
There are certain Muslims in the world that believe that if you are not a Muslim, you should die. That is a scary thought. Especially to me since I am a Christian.

I went down to my church a little while ago. I rang the bell for those killed on 9/11/01. I also prayed that our country, founded in part on freedom of religion, could remain so.

Well, I can't get a video to post here...I was trying to put up "God Bless the USA" performed by Neal E. Boyd. It's amazing. If you get a chance go to Youtube and check out Neal E. Boyd singing this song.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good location Karen, I'll check it out.

I'd like to invite classmates to an annual party I have each year in Pinnacle, NC. This year it is October 17th.

Go to for details.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Bulldogs!

Well, Christmas is quickly approaching. The other day I heard a Christmas song on the radio.."It's The Most Wonderful Time of THe Year." I thought to myself that I could substitute "Stressful" for "Wonderful" sometimes. I think many people (myself included) have the inclination to get caught up in the so called commercialism and temporarily forget the true meaning of Christmas. With all the activities surrounding this Holy event, come lots of emotions as well. Some good...laughter, gifts,friends and family. Some not so good...sadness, money problems and solitude. That's why it's important to remember the true reason of our Holy day. Celebrating the birth of Jesus. It's not all about trees and lights and parties, sure they can add to it...but it's simply about celebrating the birth of Jesus. Especially in our hard economic times, one must be cognizant of those experiencing some trepidation about the upcoming Christmas season. My dear friend, an attorney, always says: "Keep your eyes on the prize." In my opinion the best thing I can do this and every Christmas is to keep my eyes on the prize...the birth of Jesus. I wish all Bulldogs a meaningful Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2010.
