6. I have done some interesting reading this week. I finished reading a good thriller, Night Fall, by Nelson DeMille. I also read another section of C.S. Lewis's book The Four Loves. I will write about it soon. There have been some interesting op-ed articles in the AJC this week that I have thought about a lot. I have several half-written posts about some of them. I spent quite a bit of time helping my son on writing assignments for a doctoral class on Multicultural Education. that has been very enlightening. We read and wrote a report on Esperanza Rising, a semiautobiograhical children's book by Pam Munoz Ryan about a young Mexican girl who comes to the US during the Great Depression. We also reread a couple of books written by my brother-in-law and sister: The Big Picture and the children's version of the book in the Today's Heroes series, Ben Carson. The authors of these books are Gregg Lewis and Deborah Shaw Lewis. If you have not read these two outstanding books about an outstanding man, you should read them post haste.
7. My granddaugher, Aggie, and I survived a duck attack while we were walking around the community lake yesterday. They didn't even break the skin when they pecked my legs. Aggie panicked and used me for a barrier, but she thought it was funny later.
