Crafting the Nation

Facebook turned on me. I'm back to journalin.


"Now, it should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life of America today can ignore the present war....It can never be saved so long as it destroys the deepest hopes of men the world over. So it is that those of us who are yet determined that America will be are led down the path of protest and dissent, working for the health of our land." Martin Luther King, Jr. 4/4/67, "Beyond Vietnam."

I am doing something a little different with my journal, at least for the next little while.

I am working on a project called "Crafting the Nation." My goal is to donate a handmade item to a charity in all 50 states. Ohio done...49 to go.

If you know of a charity in your state that you'd like me to donate to, let me know! :)
