I've really been enjoying this series, and it's always cool to see places where I live or have been being featured like this.

Bonfils_logo_65Yesterday, I hit the 2 gallon mark at Bonfils.  2 gallons is approximately 16 donations and takes almost 3 years.  Each donation saves up to 3 lives.

Saving Buffalo’s Untold Beauty

Monday, November 17, 2008 11:10 AM

The New York Times had a really cool article on preserving Buffalo's historic architecture yesterday, entitled "Saving Buffalo's Untold Beauty."  While Andrea was in law school at UB, we saw a number of the locations mentioned in the article.  There really is a remarkable amount of history in and around the Buffalo area, and it is good to see that it is being preserved where it can be.  The article definitely brought back some memories of all of the touring that we did around there.

The Morning After

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 2:19 PM

My friend, Dave, sent me this cartoon this morning by Ed Stein of the Rocky Mountain News.  I think it perfectly captures my sentiments this morning.  We are seeing a new dawn rising in this country.  One where hope triumphs over fear and where the weight of one's actions triumphs over the color of one's skin. 

While I am truly hopeful for the direction that we are now headed, much hard work remains.  It is easy to get caught up in the emotion of the moment and forget that change does not happen overnight.  It has taken this country over 200 years to get where we are today and the problems of today will not vanish in the blink of an eye.  We stand at the precipice of a new era in American politics, and it is now our time to demand that responsible action is taken; to not forget that difficult choices lie ahead and that shared sacrifice will be required from us all. 

I truly hope that we can move beyond the blind partisanship and realize that our neighbors, red or blue, all desire what is best for America.  While we may have our principled differences in policy, it is imperative that we remember that fact.  Politics need not be like rooting for your favorite team, but should be about rooting for a better America.

Change has come to America!  Let us work together to keep moving toward the America we all deserve.  Quoting Micah 6:8, "He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

thankyou_bannerAfter voting for him throughout the caucuses, I had the privilege today of casting my ballot for the next President of the United States, Barack Obama!  Today is a truly historic day as we have elected the first black President.  Now it is time for this nation to come together and respond to the urgency of now. 

Change has come to America!  Yes we can!

Vote!

Today is election day!  I had planned on taking an early lunch break to miss the lines, but I drove by my polling place on the way to work and there was no line, so I went ahead and voted.  I was ballot 33 at the Lakewood Library this morning. 

If you've been reading my blog, my preferences are clear, but regardless of your political leanings, please vote today!  This is your chance to have a say in your government.  It is not a privilege to be taken lightly.  Vote!
