Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Glory was in good company this weekend.

This time last year, I shared a quote and a story about Dr. Martin Luther King. Here's the quote:

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”

And here's the link to that post if you care to go back and read it:

Now a book I wrote is appearing on lists suggested for students studying Dr. King, the Civil Rights movement, Freedom Summer. I truly appreciate my book appearing next to the likes of  
One Crazy Summer and  
The Watsons Go to Birmingham in this 

And this newspaper article from the Winston-Salem Journal.

Feeling very proud and very humble this morning!

Thanks for linking back to my post! I truly appreciated how your book gives insight on what it's like to be an "ordinary" kid living during those tumultuous times and how standing up was a really scary and dangerous thing but that everyone can be a hero and by standing up for what they believe in -- even it means attending a party -- can actually change the world.

Thank you for your wonderful book!
