It was just announced that President Obama and first lady, Michelle Obama will be visiting Tucson on Wednesday to pay tribute to the victims of last Saturday's mass shootings.
Later that day, the President will speak at a memorial event at the University of Arizona. The event is being titled, "Together we Thrive:Tucson and Arizona." The event will include an American Indian blessing, a moment of silence, a poetry reading and a presentation of a chain featuring messages from the public.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
