Veteran’s Day 2013

This morning at 11:11 am, I, along with two other students, and seven faculty/staff members at Hendrix College, read war-related poetry at Young-Wise Stadium Plaza in honor of those men and women who gave their lives fighting, those who served our country and are now veterans, those who are still serving this country actively, in the Reserve or the Guard, and of course, those families who support them. Every aforementioned person has made an ultimate sacrifice for our country, and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for all that they have done. They are truly an inspiration to me, and motivate me to fight each and every day for what I believe in. Here’s to you. Happy Veteran’s Day!

The two poems I read are:

“Afghan Christmas Day” by Mark Quince and “I Am With You” by Hannah Carpenter, both written in 2009

Fishing Weekend!

Well, Saturday morning started with about an hour to ring in the weekend with Kristi 🙂 Then Saturday afternoon, my friend Rebecca and I went out and got our fishing licenses and visited Craig Campbell Reservoir on Lake Conway and had a blast! And Sunday (today), Boots and I went out to Beaverfork Lake for a little and then to Kristi’s neighborhood lake to sum up the weekend! So much water and sun time! Fun!

With Kristi and Boots!
