I want to start this letter by thanking each and every one of you for your efforts in slowing the spread of COVID-19 as we restarted school over the last four weeks.
“It is priceless to find a person who will take responsibility … to know when someone has accepted an assignment that it will be effectively and conscientiously completed. But when half-finished assignments keep coming back – to check on, to verify, to edit, to interrupt thought and to take …
“There is a time in the last few days of summer when the ripeness of autumn fills the air.” -Rudolfo Anaya. “I enjoyed the whole process of learning and was always happy when autumn came and school or college started up again.” -Claire Tomalin. “My favourite season is autumn, and I love walk…
“Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way,…
“Have you ever looked at the bud of a magnolia flower? It’s a tight little pod that stays closed up for a long time on the end of its branch until one day, out of nowhere, it finally bursts open into this gigantic, gorgeous, fragrant flower that’s ten times bigger than the bud itself. It’s i…
“July is hot afternoons and sultry nights and mornings when it’s joy just to be alive. July is a picnic and a red canoe and a sunburned neck and a softball game and ice tinkling in a tall glass. July is a blind date with summer.” -Hal Borland.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” - Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

The good news is that more sports seem to be on the horizon. The NBA is nearing total agreement on its plan to restart the season for 22 of its teams in July. The plan is an eight-game season to determine seeding for the postseason, then to have the playoffs.
ATLANTA — The Coronavirus outbreak can be stressful for everybody, including children. How that struggle manifests and what parents can do to help varies by age.
“At last came the golden month of the wild folk-- honey-sweet May, when the birds come back, and the flowers come out, and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.” -Samuel Scoville Jr.
Most mornings, I’ll hear it even before my alarm goes off: the cheerful chirps of the dawn chorus. Birds around my neighborhood take to singing as the sun rise (and some even before) and it’s always a happy note to start the morning.
“A mother’s hug lasts long after she lets go.” -Unknown. “The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation.” -James E. Faust.
I have been sheltering-in-place around one month now, and while it still doesn’t feel like anything close to normal, it gets a little better day by day. It certainly hasn’t been easy but I find that the more that’s been taken away, the more interesting things I have found to replace them. H…
ATLANTA — As families face unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia pediatricians are offering parents guidance for keeping kids healthy during this extraordinary time.

As we continue to practice “shelter-in-place” and your home DIY’s (Do-It-Yourself), this is a good time to work on your landscaping and grounds. Our landscapes are all about plant populations, thus we need to better understand their needs, including their food and water requirements.
A recent conversation with a new friend inspired me to write this week’s article. She was telling me that she is ready to leave drinking, smoking and fornication and turn to Jesus, but she fears she will be bored. Her words made me laugh when she said “Yep, I am a real sinner but I want to c…
Narrow restriction of local information about confirmed cases of COVID-19 begs the question: What is the appropriate balance between protecting an individual’s identity and the public’s right to information during a public health crisis?
Come Monday, it’ll be the start of the third week since I began to shelter-in-place. It doesn’t quite seem like I’ve been doing this for two weeks, but maybe that’s because shelter-in-place really isn’t too different from what I do every week.
Much has been written about the Greatest Generation, usually defined as those born between 1910 and 1924, many of whom risked their lives fighting in World War II. Those that came after them look upon that generation with great admiration and gratitude for their bravery and for the sacrifice…
With the coronavirus spreading and wreaking havoc on the entire world — shutting down economies, forcing families into lock down, and killing thousands of innocent people — many are only looking at the negative. It is hard to not do that when the world is coming crashing down in a way that h…
