Before I begin my whirlwind of snapshots from this experience, I need to express appreciation to our hosts for not only opening up their home to us as house guests, but also for doing all the driving once we arrived. Dallas is a maze of freeways criss-crossing at many levels along with a lot of road construction. Our friends are new residents so they make no claim to knowing it all, but they did an excellent job of figuring it out.
One room has a series of video screens replaying the various aspects of September 11th. I found that to be especially moving, especially as I thought about all that has happened since that terrible day in 2001.
It is good to have a President who knows God and seeks to follow His teachings. I am grieved that more Americans don't take a candidate's faith seriously as we move toward the elections later this year.
