The Minkoff Minx {Go Ahead…Make Your Move!}

"I get very passionate about what I think is right."-Hillary Rodham Clinton

Only you….can prevent forest fires.

So, we were driving to Atlanta…taking the kids to their dentist appointment, when I noticed some big pine trees along the Nottley Dam Rd. Instantly, I was transported back to when I was a kid. I remember this public service announcement from Smokey the Bear…do you?

What made this particular ad stick in my head? Was it all the history that was communicated to this young viewer within that minutes time? Who would know that I would go on the be a history major at college…

Thinking about this commercial made me also think about the month of August and what it means for those of us who live around Atlanta. This is the month that Sherman fought so hard for Atlanta.

I can never drive down I75 without thinking about what took place along that river of concrete 130+ years ago. When we go to Kennesaw Battlefield, or Chickamauga I get angry seeing people playing frisbee on those hallowed grounds…to think of the disrespect given on those grassy fields were thousands lost their lives.

It makes me wonder if people realize the importance of historical landmarks, battlefields, and the like….

And in other news, the American Ballet Theatre will be performing in Cuba for the first time since 1960.

This is really cool for me because my childhood Ballet Instructor, Haydee Gutierrez, is from Cuba and pictures of her dancing in Don Quixote for the Ballet Nacional de Cuba used to be plastered all over the walls at the dance studio.
