If you're ever passing through the Vicksburg/Clinton/Jackson MS area, let me know!
It was all a bit surreal. LC is no more than a three minute walk from my house. Of course I was going to tear myself away from playing with the kittens to head down there with my older sister, and twin sister. As well as our two dogs, of course.
To hear it told on the radio this morning there was an evil hidden agenda behind the vigil. My best friend is currently living in Euphoria, MS, and was on the phone with me while I was listening to the radio. She was so upset by what she was hearing that she actually called the radio station to take a stand for, not only myself, but for everyone invovled, and they hung up on her rather quickly. She was the only person to call within the hour that I was listening who didn't take a hostile stance. Gotta love small, Southern towns
It's so odd that an even such as this would make the A section of our news paper! here is the link to the full article should anyone be interested in reading it. http://www.thetowntalk.com/article/2.../-1/NEWSFRONT2
