Hubby went with a friend to the old Decatur courthouse to look at a Confederate Army uniform coat. When he came home he was excited, not about the uniform coat, but about the Anne Frank exhibit that was on display.

We went back on Tuesday. It was an amazing exhibit! There was a 28 minute video, in addition to an art exhibit from some local schools. Some of those art exhibits just ripped out my heart. There was one in particular, a wooden Star of David with barbed wire around it and all kind of baby items that was extremely sad, and then there was the scrapbook of two Holocaust survivors. Photos weren't allowed in the exhibit. I have placed "The Diary of Anne Frank" on my must read list.

We have no idea what the Jewish people experienced during the Holocaust. We must pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Read her diary. Watch Schindler's List. Then reserve some time to sit and cry.

Anne Frank was a very special girl. You'll smile and cry when you read the diary.

On another note: I wasn't sure if my response to your comment on my blog would travel back to you - so:
Tee, Can I suggest checking out Sirs Fabrics in Fayetteville, TN. They have a web site ( and will send samples for a small fee. I've had them ship fabrics to me. You'll never find fabric at a better price for the same quality. Even if you don't see something of interest, it's fun to look at their on-line inventory. I have to admit the exact shade of red you're looking for may be a challenge but if you hurry and shop before the wound heals you'll have a perfect sample with you for comparison. (Sorry just couln't resist.) I can't get blogger to allow me to make a link but you can cut and paste the web address if you're interested.

When you get a minute, check my blog. You have something there.
