• MLK Day, What Are We Doing For Others?

    Keep reading to discover why I chose this photo.

    Today is Martin Luther King Day, and it is a day that many people around the country honor by giving a day of service to their communities. When I found the following news segment on Home Depot and its volunteers who also use the day to perform various needed service projects in their individual areas, I knew I had to bring it to you.

    I hope you’ll take the time to view this very short segment, and then I hope Comanche and Dublin will begin immediately thinking about 2013 and what we might could accomplish if we all took one day to work together on whatever our respective communities happen to need.

    I happened upon one other video that I just had to include here as well.  Can you imagine finding yourself in the middle of a Norman Rockwell painting,  a painting we’ve all seen many, many times, a painting that has endured for decades? It happened to one little girl who this many years later tells us about the experience. I think you will enjoy the following as much as I did.

    About Fredda Jones

    Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
