HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

Due to the fact we have all been inundated with so much information regarding the pandemic, the economy, the protests, the riots, and the up-coming Presidential election, I thought it better to sit back quietly for awhile.  However, like yourself, what we have seen on the news of late has disturbed me and prompted me to put in my two cents regarding racial unrest not only around the nation but as close as Atlanta in regards to our home county of Douglas.
