Why we went to Washington, D.C.

Why some of us went to Washington, D.C., recently, myself and my wife included, is because our very existence as a nation is at stake.

Our federal government has run over our Constitution with out of control spending and takeover. Most of what the Congress does is unconstitutional.

The only thing that those elected officials in Washington fear is the voice of the American people. In person!

That is why we took our time and money to leave our comfortable living room and join the recent rally in Washington to protest the virtual takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy.

Last night, I was reading a letter from another patriot published in your paper, “Was it worth it?” and thinking, “This guy went for the same reason(s) that we went.” Then when I got to the bottom of the page, I realized that I knew this person.

It was Woody. Even though we didn’t see each other at the rally, we both agreed that it was worth the time and effort to let ourselves be heard and will do it again when necessary.

I challenge each of you: get off your sofa, stop yelling at the TV, and join with us the next time we rally in D.C. I will hopefully be putting together a bus from Peachtree City.

You may write me at jcurrie6@bellsouth.net and request that we reserve a spot for you on the next Patriot bus, bound for D.C.

In 1982, I was serving as an associate minister at a large church in western Colorado. I received an invitation to candidate for the position of pastor at a church in Alabama.

The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Senoia June 6-7 for the Canongate Series #4. The Canongate Seminole Course played excellent host to two very competitive rounds of junior golf.

Hot July and August days can be stressful for birds, but a bird-friendly yard can attract birds — especially those fascinating hummingbirds — all summer long.
