10 August '15....the month is fleeting ! I continue to work with my family history note books, making them presentable for their trip to either Fayette Co, Clayton and Henry Co, and Cobb county Georgia. Hutcheson-Webb side as well. Received acknowledgement today for the box sent to Baxter Co, Historical Society with Mountain Home College memorabilia. While I work in the comfort of air conditioning, it was 101 degrees today. I feel for those who have only fans and shade.
Yesterday was the first anniversary of a police man in Ferguson, MO killing an unarmed youth. The death caused over a week of self destruction. Reading the head lines today, tension has escalated and one person killed. I wonder how the political candidates will react. Last week, during the first Republican debate(s) [so many, 16 men, 1 female, candidates, the first debate was divided and there were 2 debates on same day], race relations was barely touch.
On a happier thought, eight men were inducted into NF Hall of Fame. Two who had played for Dallas, Tim Brown and Charles Haley gave outstanding acceptance speeches and are wonderful examples for young blacks to follow. They both had fathers in the home when they were growing up, setting a great example and demanded high standards. Very rewarding.
