Chilling Words From 1994

In 1994 Dick Cheney had the following to say on C-SPAN about going into Baghdad and overthrowing Saddam Hussein…. Where those prophetic words or what? I personally believe that Saddam Hussein needed to be taken out of power and punished for his crimes and I support the President’s decision in going into Iraq to do […]

From Childhood Memories To Adulthood Memories

Kimmy and I decided on the camera that we wanted to get from the sale of my childhood memories. We purchased from eBay a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. We are really looking forward to getting it and getting some really cool pictures of Caleb’s soccer games, Hannah’s dance stuff, our trip on the Pacific […]

Matthew had encountered so many people that were dealing with cancer and other […]
