Any assistance, no matter how small, is appreciated. Paying for medical care in this country is complicated at times, especially as a foreign, female, unpaid intern. I believe we have all experienced rough times when even in the process of bettering ourselves and working towards a brighter future, something as simple as a $500 bill would seem an insurmountable. I know that I have, and I made it through it on the generosity of my friends and family.

I'm disheartened at the latest proposal Commissioner Randolph has submitted in regard to raising the Confederate flag above the Greene County Courthouse. Greene County was such a progressive place back in the early and mid 1800s. This lunacy now posits us as a laughing stock. Who would have thought that the abolitionist efforts of Elihu Embree and Benjamin Lundy would have decayed to such a degree that anyone would consider hoisting a symbol of slavery above their homesteads? I wonder how the conveners of the East Tennessee Convention of 1861 might chime in on this ludicrous political narcissism? Do you honestly think that Andrew Johnson would be pleased to see the Confederate Flag flying outside the window of his tailor shop? Please honor the legacy of our local heroes, Thomas D. Arnold, William G. Brownlow, William B. Carter, Andrew Johnson, Horace Maynard, Thomas A.R. Nelson, and Connolly F. Trigg and prevent a counterhistorical narrative from beginning. Not only is this proposed gesture misrepresentative of our local history, it is a slap in the face of civil decency. Raising this controversial flag only serves the purpose of prolonging the errant ideology of white supremacy under the guise of Southern pride, and as a member of the clergy, I unashamedly say, "Enough is enough!" Please stop this political sidetrack and start working to promote peace! I challenge you and all our commissioners to take your political jobs seriously by working for the common good of all people. Please refrain from superfluous distractions and focus on resolving domestic violence, poverty, illiteracy, and drug abuse. Please responsibly steward the power entrusted to you by focusing on the least among us and by becoming a servant to all. I implore you to vote against this measure and championing a revival of the principles that were truly a part of our historic heritage -- principles that stood up and spoke truth to power.

An author got angry and wrote a blog. You won't believe what happened next!
Gech. I feel dirty having written that. But honestly, what happened after I wrote the blog was pretty cool.
If any of y'all would be willing to help spread the word, it would be greatly appreciated....

I completed my time there with a 4.0 GPA, receiving placement on the Dean's List for every semester attended as well as receiving the Outstanding Student Award for the Computer Technology department in the 2012-2013 school year.
I have been working with, repairing, building, networking, and programming computers for most of my life. While I am not as experienced as many when it comes to hardware support and repair, I am quite experienced and practiced in dealing with software and customer support. My programming experience leans mostly toward web development, but I hope to begin development on several applications soon.
