Obama

Yesterday, as part of Barack Obama's Call to Service Day, my daughter Lauren, her friend Jimmy and I volunteered to do yardwork for an 89 year old woman, Mary, who lives alone and it was wonderful, she even provided us with hot chocolate and marshmallows. Jimmy and Lauren have been volunteering for awhile for school, but honestly, this was a first for me and for the Lutheran church that brought together the volunteers with those, mainly elderly, who needed some assistance. Hopefully, both the church and I will do something similar again.

Also, I received this vid where, as part of Obama's effort to keep alive his grassroots organization, he announces the formation of Organizing of America. Takes just a minute and can be found behind the cut.
