Proud that I got involved in this election's ground game and the democratic process! Over the course of the election, I made 1200 calls for @hillaryclinton because I truly believe #strongertogether and I thank #hrc for her lifelong and continued service for the good of our already great nation. It was great to be able to talk to people all over the country about their concerns and issues important to them. I think most all of us have more similar beliefs and values than not, but fear has harnessed some troubling emotions. Since our nation's founding, Americans have had a fighting spirit, loving to stand behind a cause. Believe me, I understand and I have a fighting spirit as well! I want us all to be fighting on the side of freedom and goodness, and now more than ever, be vigilant and alert to protect our democracy and the rights we hold so dear. We must ensure a free media and also ensure that political opponents, or any one of us, or our neighbors, are not afraid to express our opinions, concerns, and truths. We must respect our democratic process and never take democracy for granted. Without our democracy there are no other issues to discuss.  #bevigilant #democracy #usa #fight #freedom #freespeech#freepress #respect #president #debatedonthate

Celebrating and Remembering Music and Life Teacher Mr. Marion 

Celebrating the life of our beloved teacher of music and life, Mr. Marion , and looking toward the heavens through this tree of his favorite color. Mr. Marion was in my young adult life as youth pastor and high school chorale - which meant I was around him basically all the time!  Such a wonderful and kind man who served the community in so many ways for so many years inspiring people young and old.  I remember fun and meaningful times - trick-or-treating for UNICEF, taking Thanksgiving meals to shut-ins, Christmas caroling, prayer breakfasts, Chorale and youth group trips (Gatlinburg "Resurrection", Confirmation, etc), among so many other events - I really cannot emphasize how much this man was a huge part of my life!  I will so miss coming home and seeing him in the church, or meeting for a sound check, or just walking by his house and seeing his red truck with him out in the yard with his family.  We will all miss you more than words can say Mr. Marion.  May we follow in his example and continue to set the world on fire in beautiful shades of joy, love, and music!

Being Presidential! 

I am so very excited that Virginia's own Tim Kaine has been selected as Hillary Clinton's VP running mate!  Not too long ago I had the pleasure of meeting with both Senator Warner and Senator Kaine to receive recognition for "Sela Sela (Dance Together)" which was the Official Song of the Africa Cup 2013. Both of these gentlemen have a long history of service in politics to our state and country, but little did I know that one of them would now be a VP candidate - not that I am surprised! Here are a couple pictures, one with all smiles for the camera and one with the Senators checking out my cd! I thought it would be a fun time to share!
