my love affair with this american life continues. i listened to this segment today and it’s so true. warms my heart. while i don’t consider myself to be eternally cheerful, i was very close to it back in the day anytime i was with my troop. and the principles i learned from that part of my life still hold up when times get hard as an adult. of course things have never been hard for me on the concentration camp level, but the fact remains. what an interesting story.

The Freedmen’s Bureau Project
this is amazing. i can’t wait to try it out when it’s complete. not sure how much i’ll find for my own family, but that doesn’t matter. it’s a resource that fills my heart. you can even help build the database.

This was the best week of Obama’s presidency
what a week.
