    Happy WW! Remarkable MLK photo. I’ve never seen it before…

    I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. As such, the Station Fire that still rages in Southern California hits home. I invite your blog readers to pray for the power of firefighters to overcome this massive fire.

    peace, Villager

    We take so much for granted in our culture. I wonder if young people really appreciate the accomplishments achieved by these examples, and how the adversity they faced was so much more than scholastic.
