Sorry, I've been out

Sorry, everybody, I have been out the last couple of days with a combination of a head cold and a stomach virus. I just got back to answering my email this morning and have not done anything with The Common Voice or Stack Of Stuff since Monday. I'll try to get a new poll up on TCV soon.

Oh, Come All Ye Singers

World record for caroling is pursued

Well, the number just took off. In order to break the record for most Christmas carolers at Bob Jones University tonight, there will need to be nearly 4000 people participating. Wow!

Come out and join us for the singing. Even if the record isn't broken, a good time will be had by all. The campus is all set and ready to be illuminated. It really is a cool thing to see when the switch is flipped and the lights explode (not literally!) all around the front of campus.

Hope to see you there. If you are interested, I will be on the 5 o'clock and 6 o'clock news talking with WYFF 4. Then again, you can also take that as a warning so you can avoid it :-)

Join MySoldier - support the troops

My Soldier

My Soldier is a program that puts politics aside and lets U.S. soldiers know that someone back home cares. When a person enrolls in the My Soldier program, they agree to adopt a soldier. They receive a “starter kit” containing guidelines for letter writing and care package preparation, a red My Soldier bracelet, and a specially designed My Soldier baseball hat to include with the first letter they send to their deployed United States Armed Serviceperson.

Manhattanville College President Richard A. Berman and active U.S. Army Sergeant Juan Salas launched the new program, called My Soldier, at a November 10 press conference on the Manhattanville campus in Purchase, New York.

My Soldier is reminiscent of the POW/MIA bracelet program that was launched on Veteran's Day, 1970. That campaign was the brainchild of two college students in Los Angeles, who were looking for ways young people could support soldiers overseas without becoming involved in the controversy surrounding the war. Manhattanville’s particular program is born from the college’s mission to “educate ethically and socially responsible leaders for the global community.” It is also a natural outgrowth of the college’s commitment to empower students to be passionate and to pursue their dreams to make the world a better place.
