National Tragedy

Inherent from my father is my sense of being able to see humor in almost everything, however events of this week contain no humor whatsoever.  I'd just like to say a couple things...I'm very proud that young people like Amy and Mary Perdue and Matt McDonald read my website and are so eloquent in expressing their thoughts of this tragedy.  There is nothing I can add to what they have already said.  I would like to encourage each of you to visit the two links below, one is the National Prayer and the other is a poem written about this horrific event.  I think that together they cover all our thoughts and prayers at this time.

National Prayer    Shining In The Dark

Friday Night at 7:00 p.m. step out your door, stop your car, or step out of your establishment and light a candle.   We will show the world that Americans are strong and united together against terrorism.  Please pass this to everyone on your e-mail list.  We need to reach everyone across the United States quickly.  The message:  WE STAND UNITED - WE WILL NOT TOLERATE TERRORISM!

Island-wide Prayer Services
