Nancy Is Still Working Hard

August 26, 2008

It has been months since I have updated the blog or the web site, but Nancy has not missed a Friday morning. Readers of this blog can be forgiven if thought Nancy was no longer remembering those who are sacrificing in Iraq. Rest assured, every Friday morning Nancy gets up early, adds the names of those who died in the last week to her list, and heads out in the early dawn light to draw their names.

She is currently drawing on the brick on NE Holladay St, between 13th and 11th, heading toward Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. She tries to start by 7:15am, but sometimes is running late. She would love for you to join her some morning.

Rememberances

August 26, 2008

William L. McMillan III, 22, of Lexington, Ky died July 8th 2008. I found Run For The Fallen while researching William McMillan. Here is their flickr page. I had not heard of this event before. Just ended today. A lot of good people are doing good things to help other good people. It’s hard for people with out professional press agents and publicity departments to get their message out over the roar of political news and Hollywood gossip.
