1. San Francisco, California 
These tiled stairs run up a total of 163 steps at 16th and Moraga Street

Over 300 neighborhoods joined in to create the 
spectacle, leading to an absolutely beautiful result.

a tune too.

Remembering Those Lost and Their Loved Ones - 9/11



George W. Bush
A Prayer for the Departed
 
We come before God to pray for the missing and the dead, and for those who love them... On this national day of prayer and remembrance, we ask Almighty God to watch over our nation, and grant us patience and resolve in all that is to come. We pray that He will comfort and console those who now walk in sorrow. We thank Him for each life we now must mourn, and the promise of a life to come.
 
As we have been assured, neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, can separate us from God's love. May He bless the souls of the departed. May He comfort our own. And may He always guide our country.
--From his address to the nation after the World Trade Center attacks, September 14, 2001

Oh oh, my sister is Sexist - but in a good way.. #Kiva

While we have been a bit upset with Kiva after seeing posts on the internet stating that their lenders who loan the money to the requestors, charge up to 100% interest to the borrowers. Kiva has told/assured us that is not the case, and we are hoping that is the truth.
