    This past week we experienced the brunt of two major hurricanes and the 16th anniversary of 9/11.

    While these kinds of events can bring the worst in terms of destruction, they can also bring the best in terms of compassion.

    Because they bring us together as one. Nature is the great equalizer. 

    Most of us remember how we stood together as Americans after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Any other labels that might have existed were stripped away.

  • Chicken thighs (dark meat) are often maligned as being unhealthy. Chicken breasts, on the other hand, because they are composed of white meat, are thought of as a healthier option, but breasts and thighs actually don’t differ that much in nutrient content.

  • Pastor Stephen Nobles and the Sunshine Sisters of New Britton Baptist Church in Ash celebrate the 84th birthday of Boyd Inman, who was born Sept. 15, 1933.

  • I have dubbed one of my daughters Olivia Obituary. She is my designated news bearer alerting me when a friend from my past life in Connecticut enters eternal life. Thus, she bore the sad/happy news of the death of a 49-year-old woman I knew as a little girl years ago. Sad/happy are my words because this was the ending of a life viewed by many as being limited. Instead, it was deep and beautiful, filled with a wisdom few possess and dare to share. She was more than her diagnosis of Down syndrome.
