We visited the home of Andrew Jackson on the morning of Thursday, August 7th, 2014. It was an amazing place his estate, and unfortunately, like many wealthy men at the time, he earned his money on the backs of his Slaves. He had quite a number at the Hermitage to handle the cotton crop. Historians say he was a good owner, that he allowed his slaves to marry, that he kept families together, and that he replaced over zealous overseers. Some even said that a group of slaves gathered outside his window to watch him as he lay dying, while later interviews with those slaves reported they were watching to see if upon his death, the devil would appear at his side to drag him down to Hell. Personally, I find the practice of slavery abhorrent, even though it appears in the Bible as a "Tradition" handed down through civilization for millennia.

On Tuesday, August 5th, we visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, the site of the Alfred Murrah Federal Building bombing that took do many lives back in the 90s. For both Dan and myself, it was an emotional visit. I know that I relived part of that day while walking through the memorial. I remembered seeing this huge building, its entire front blown away from the truck bomb, the one photo that will forever be engraved upon my heart was that of the Fireman carrying that bruised and silent infant, rushing to get that child help, not knowing that the baby was already deceased. Even to this day, when I see that image, I wonder what happened to that baby's parents, how distraught they must have been, or if thry even survived.

The memorial itself was simple, empty chairs line up with the deceased names upon them. One thing I thought should have been added to their names, to give them more honor and respect, was the name of the agency they worked for - for example, the one's who worked for SSA, FBI, State Dept, etc. They may have been Federal Employees, but I am sure they were much more a part of the Agency for which they worked.

If you had guns trained on your family, your friends, and on yourself, you'd certainly vote the way they, the one's holding the guns, wanted you to vote. Note: The percentage in favor would have been higher, but someone surely said that 100% would have looked "odd".
