A little good news.......Phil Campbell High School was awarded $50,000 today by the Glee Give A Note
committee. You all changed lives with your votes, with the time that you spent encouraging all your blog buddies and friends to vote, there is now a tiny community in Northwest Alabama where the sun is shinning brightly tonight and the music plays loud and clear. Pat yourselves on the back, do a happy dance, and say a prayer of gratitude!
My friend Kim (whose son was in the video) said you could hear the kids and the whole community
yelling and crying as the announcement was made today. I know that most of you are like me, and many days you might think that nothing you do matters.......well guess what, it does. Because of your help,
Phil Campbell High School will have help rebuilding their band program. April 27th destroyed so many homes and lives here in Alabama, but I know that music heals. Today, healing in Phil Campbell took a giant leap!
Our state has a long way to go in the rebuilding and healing process.......Rick and I drove from Birmingham today, and the devastation still leaves me reeling. All around us, it still looks like a war zone......there are times that as I drive through the communities, tears fall down my face. But these bright spots, these incredible good deeds, keep us all going. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, with your efforts music will live in the hearts and lives of young people, whose world was turned upside down by the storms. Who knows the impact of your simple vote? I believe your act of faith and good will changed the world and set into action something that will have lasting impact for years to come.
This is the best Christmas gift ever! Blessings of love, of good health and contentment to all of you.
We did it!!!!!!!!!
