I cut the following out of my latest article at Forthright and decided to use it here. That terrible morning comes to mind every December or everytime someone mentions their highschool.
Where Where You?
I was getting ready for work the morning of December 1st, 1997 when I heard the DJ say that there had been a shooting at Heath High School. I’ll never forget how his voice cracked when he mentioned the word 'causalities' or the chill that rose up my spine. Nor will I forget the long drive to work on the same road that passed the school. I had graduated from there years before and still had friends (students and teachers) that attended. I remember praying intensely for them hoping and pleading for this to be a terrible dream.
As I drove, I passed a man changing the sign in front of his business. He wiped his eyes as he walked away from the marquee that held the words, ‘Pray for our children’. I continued to pray as the tears began to flow.

I'm not good with plants. In fact, my husband and I weren't married three months before I had killed every one of his houseplants. It's not that I don't try, it's just that I don't have whatever it is to keep them alive (which is probably a strong commitment to keep them alive ;). However, the cactus is immune to my less than green thumb. It continues to thrive and is the topic of my latest article at Forthright. You can read it by clicking here.
Also, for you unity buffs... Bobby Cohoon asked me to participate in his unity series. You can read my article, Reunited, by clicking here.
Chris Gallagher of the Preacher's Pen site asked me to write on what I loved about the church. It wasn't hard to come up with the answer. That article is here: What I Love About the Church

I was asked to be a guest writer at two different places in the month of August and hope you'll stop by and read the articles offered by me and several other writers.
First, I'll have an article on unity for Bobby Cohoon at his blog Here in the Real World.
The next day, an article on what I love about the church will be featured over at Chris Gallagher's site The Preacher's Pen.
I'll include the link when they go live. Please stop by these blogs and read the articles on two great topics.
Thanks and have a great day!
