There has never been a global event with such a profound impact on our world in my lifetime. My earliest memory of a large scale event occurred when I was just four years old, John F. Kennedy was shot. I have a vague memory of my mother and her friends crying and expressing concern for our country.
Fast forward to the year 1972 and the flood that closed our schools at the end of June. From our home on the hill, I could see the Dyke Creek push over her banks and take the bridge out. A wing of the Jones Memorial Hospital collapsed into the Genesee River.
The Viet Nam War certainly caused our local community to worry over the safety of our young men serving our country.

If you are looking for a way to be part of a movement of goodness- to contribute to something promising, may I suggest donating to the ICS Tuition Angels Scholarship Fund? When all is said and done, we will open our doors and get back to the business of doing what we do best-educating children. Many of our families will struggle to move beyond family loss, unemployment, and more. We will do all that we can do to support them spiritually and financially, and we could use your help.
God bless you and yours. May your families continue to
