Are You Like Me?

American Flag
I absolutely hate confrontation. I want to surround myself with beauty, peace and love BUT, sometimes you have to reach into your heart and think about the unpleasant.

We MUST remember the evil and horror of what happened September 11, 2001.

"A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America. With the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could."

"We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them."

"Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a Power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23:

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me.

This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.

Thank you. Good night. And God bless America."

-President George W. Bush

It's not enough to only think of the horror that happened for one day each year on September 11th.

Are You with Me?

Are you in agreement with me that MAD MEN is the best show on television?

The story line is multifaceted and intriguing.

Sultry September

September may have arrived, but here in the American South, it's hot as blue blazes!

I don't want to rush any season, so I'm still savoring, ah hem, the sweltering weather.

For those of you who are feeling that crisp in the air, how about some green velvet?

We can always count on Bunny Williams' interiors to make us feel warm and cozy!
