Hurricane Sandy Prayer and Some Thoughts:

Oh, you guys.  We are so sorry for all that has happened to our friends on the East Coast because of that nasty, nasty storm:  Hurricane Sandy.

As the people are trying to assess the damage to their communities, I will be sending prayers until I learn what else I can do.  I have some ideas for later on, after things settle down a bit.  I know that Samaritain's Purse is asking for volunteers; the Red Cross, and other agencies can use our donations and help too.

When Katrina hit, I had the idea to make up kids blankets and kits for pre-schools and childcare centers to help them get back up and running.  Even if the kits are small, I figure that they would know that we are thinking of them.  Anybody want to help me with that one, or know if others are already doing this?

This storm is going to have effects that will last for months, which will spread far away from the East Coast.  It makes me want to go and buy a bunch of food before the prices rise even more.  Still, even for those people who were prepared for a disaster, how can you argue with a 32' wall of water, or your house catching fire in the middle of a huge flood?  Not to mention the raw sewage leaks and lack of electricity.  I guess that we can just do the best that we can, and help others with their needs.

Sending out hugs and love to all ... I don't know what else to say, except that I care.

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
