"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"
Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Beautiful pictures, Linda! Proud times indeed.

Love those pictures ... thanks for sharing them!

And nope ... not sick of the snow. That cold we had last week can stay away, though ... -21 without windchill is TOO cold for me.

I'd be happy to fill the album with warm weather pics, though, if you win. ;)

I've never seen the one of Barack and his granddad. What happiness!

I love seeing the family pictures.
What joy! Little did they know the young man that was carried in the arms of his mother and shoulders of his grandfather would grow up to carry our country....

Sweet Wishes,

What a lovely post!

It's so funny to look at that darling little boy and know that he grew up to be president. What an amazing day.
