Quote of the Week:   "I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision." ~ Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) U.S. biographer and poet.
