Hi Everyone ~
I'm chasing my tail as usual... busy, busy, busy!!! We had the BEST combined chapter meeting Wed. night at my house. It was also a party ~ good food, gift exchange, friends, sharing our writing... fun stuff. I truly count ANWA as one of my favorite blessings.
Did you know that Monday, Dec. 15th, is the Bill of Rights Day? How blessed we are to live in a country where we have such wonderful freedoms. Next week, at our opening ceremony (which we have every morning with all school students) a couple of classes will be taking turns each day presenting a skit on one of the first 10 Amendments (a.k.a. THE BILL OF RIGHTS). Our class has the First Amendment... one we writers should be especially grateful for.
Here it is: 1st Amendment ~
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Got to run ~ need to work on the script for our skit, but I didn't want to miss my blog (again) and thought we could all use a reminder of how lucky we are... yes, with this amendment we get the "bad" stuff as well... kind of like life ~ you need to know of the bad in order to appreciate the good ~ so let's saturate the world with our goodness!!! WRITE!!! WRITE!!! WRITE!!!
