    Interesting story that has just surfaced upon the release of the Barbara Bush biography.

    How Her 3-Year-Old Daughter's Death Convinced Barbara Bush to Be Pro-Choice: 'The Toughest Issue for Me'

    Bush’s opinion on abortion is not new — she made headlines in 1992 for saying it was “personal” — but her “struggle” with abortion and how she arrived at her stance on it is recounted in detail in Susan Page’s biography The Matriarch, which was released earlier this week.
    “In all our years of campaigning, abortion was the toughest issue for me,” Bush later wrote in her 1994 memoir.
    “Having decided that the first breath is when the soul enters the body, I believe in Federally funded abortion,” Mrs. Bush wrote. “Why should the rich be allowed to afford abortions and the poor not?”

    According to Page, Mrs. Bush was not against some possible restrictions on abortion but felt it wasn’t “a Presidential issue.”
    “Abortion is personal,” Mrs. Bush wrote, and should be between the mother, father and doctors.
    She also wrote that she believed “education is the answer.” Specifically, “I believe that we must give people goals in life for them to work for—Teach them the price you must pay for being promiscuous.”
    So much wisdom......



    Robin Bush (1949 - 1953) was the daughter of former President George H W Bush and his wife Barbara. She died of Leukemia at the age of three.

    After two terms under Rahm Emanuel.....former federal prosecutor Lori Lightfoot was elected Chicago mayor on Tuesday, becoming the first black woman and first openly gay person to lead the nation’s third-largest city.




    And backing up a bit this, when she ended up in a runoff:



    She certainly will have her hands full when she takes office on May1. Good luck Mayor...we are all truly pulling for you to get those rats under control!

    WE REMEMBER: 24 years since the Oklahoma City bombing


    On April 19, 1995, the city at the heart of the Sooner state was forever changed when a massive explosion tore through the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. A third of the structure nearly immediately collapsed, leaving 168 people dead and a city in a state of shock and grief.

    On this 24th anniversary of the terror attack, the city will gather to remember not only those who were lost, but the people who unconditionally rushed in to help as well.
    The 24th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum will feature readings from Senator James Lankford, Governor Kevin Stitt, and OKC Mayor David Holt. Danny Gokey will also sing the National Anthem.
    Survivors and family members will read the names of all 168 people killed in the terror attack. A rose will also be placed on each chair marking the victims.
    At 9:02 a.m., the city will observe 168 seconds of silence.

    My wife and I visited the Oklahoma City Memorial several years ago. If memory serves, it was before 9/11. It’s a very sobering experience. There is a chair for each person killed. There are half sized chairs for the children. I struggled to hold it together.

    I would have been a mess - I get very emotional during memorials. Thanks for sharing with us, Go Bama.

    I'm probably in the extreme minority, but their best years were the Peter Green version, and the Bob Welch version.
