US Airways Flight 3407

I was freaking out about having to fly in a snowstorm from Michigan to North Carolina on Wednesday evening. I was traveling on US Airways Flight # 3407. Ultimately, I made it home safely.

Less than 24 hours later, I learned that another group of US Airways passengers on Flight 1549 were also headed to NC (from NY) but their circumstances were dramatically different. A flock of geese could've taken 155 lives but, instead, it ended up being a miracle on the Hudson River.

What a testimony of God's goodness! I can't help thinking I could've been on that flight had the airline canceled our flight. We were delayed by two hours with the weather getting progressively worse but we made it.

You just never know how close you can come on a daily basis to it being your last day. That's why its so important to live each day the very best you can by being an inspiration to someone else.

I hope this blog post has inspired you.

Beverly,

Yes, there isn't any promise of tomorrow so it is important to live life by embracing the blessings in our lives each day. Some days it can be hard to do this however, it is so important. I am very blessed to know that if something were to happen to me my family and friends know how much they mean to me.

And it is posts like this to help us remember to be grateful and celebrate our loved ones. Thanks Beverly!

Sincerely,

Teresa Morrow

Donald Trump Has Brought Out the Worst in America

This isn't meant to be another one of those bash Donald Trump blog posts.  This is, instead, a commentary on the negativity his campaign has sparked.  

Racists have come out of the woodwork like roaches in the dark.  For the most part, these supporters would be classified as poor whites, angry because they can't advance with little or no education and the majority of them would also be identified as angry white males.  They have taken off their hoods, jumped on his bandwagon, taken off their hoods and are leading the "make America great" campaign.  They have gotten behind a candidate who spews some of the nastiest comments and behaved in such a manner that has to embarrass any decent, conscientious, law-abiding white person in America.  

People like 78-year-old man John Franklin McGraw of North Carolina have felt free to assault non Trump supporters at presidential candidate's rallies.  "The victim deserved it.  The next time we see him we might have to kill h…

Thank You Lebron James for Fulfilling My Bucket Wish List

You can't grow up in Northeastern Ohio and not be a sports fan.  As a cheerleader in middle and high schools, I came to appreciate and UNDERSTAND the game of football and basketball.  

I remember Marion Motley from the OLD Cleveland (Bulldogs) Browns coming over our house to socialize with my parents.  (He and my mother went to high school together).  I remember  Brian Sipe and the "Kardiac Kids" who always had me on the edge of my seat when they were playing.  I remember how proud I was when my high school classmate Phil Hubbard made his presence known on the Cleveland Cavaliers, along with Brad Daugherty, Ron Harper and Mark Price (the Cavalier's three-point king).

But in all of those years, we never won a championship or even came close.  My saddest memory is the 1987 AFC Championship Game between the Browns and Broncos on January 17, 1988 at Mile High Stadium. With 1:12 left in the game, Browns running back Earnest Byner fumbled on the Broncos 1 yard line while try…

The Tragedy and Illusion of Facebook

"Things aren't always the way they appear."  No truer words could be spoken following the tragic death of Karen Smith in San Bernardino, CA this week.  She was murdered on her job---in a classroom where she was teaching young students.

What intrigued me about this story was the fact that she and her husband killer, Cedric Anderson were black baby boomers around the same age as my husband and myself.  I was particularly interested in the posts he made on Facebook.  By all accounts, he posted regularly on Facebook about the so-called love and admiration he had for his wife.  He created an image that was clearly contrary to the murderous behavior he demonstrated when he walked into her classroom and killed her.

In a February 27th post, he posted a selfie video and said:  "I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson!"

March 11 post, he said: "My wife Karen Smith-Anderson is an Angel!!!"

March 12: He posted a youtube song by Sade titled By Your Side and said:…
