LBJ's Speech on Equal Rights after Kennedy's Assassination

Yesterday, I mentioned Kennedy's speech.

Then there is this speech by Lyndon B. Johnson on November 27,1963, after Kennedy was assassinated.


http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/lbjletuscontinue.html

He said "Our most immediate tasks are here on this Hill. First, no memorial oration or eulogy could more eloquently honor President Kennedy's memory than the earliest possible passage of the Civil Rights Bill for which he fought so long. We have talked long enough in this country about equal rights. We have talked for a hundred years or more. It is time now to write the next chapter, and to write it in the books of law. I urge you again, as I did in 19 and 57 and again in 19 and 60, to enact a civil rights law so that we can move forward to eliminate from this nation every trace of discrimination and oppression that is based upon race or color. There could be no greater source of strength to this nation both at home and abroad."

Civil Rights Address by John F. Kennedy

My studies of EEOC have led me to some interesting sources. I recommend this Civil Rights Address by John F. Kennedy. This site has audio and transcript.

This speech is our President calling on our nation to support the legislation he had asked Congress to write. He said, "Next week I shall ask the Congress of the United States to act, to make a commitment it has not fully made in this century to the proposition that race has no place in American life or law."

Project Life: This stuff makes me so happy!

I've been quiet here during the first months of the year. Trying to really get a feel for the year and what needs to be done.

I have a theory that new year's resolutions ought not to be made until the beginning of February. That way, you have a whole month to think about what you need to do and even "try it on" before resolving.

I had known about Project 365 for some time, but the products sold out rather quickly and I never remembered to look at amazon at the right time. I finally started following Becky's blog, where she announces the product information. I got my Project Life materials ordered and I am working on it for this year.

I am not yet in the habit of doing this, so there will be some filling in for the photos and journaling I missed. Oh well. I'd rather do this poorly (even very poorly) than not all!

Project Life really makes me happy! This is what I have been wanting for my scrapbooks! I was never a very artistic scrapbooker, nor was I fast. Throw the tendency I have toward perfectionism (which comes from insecurity, because I am sure that I am not as good as all of you are) and I didn't get much done in my albums.

I just love this and so happy that Becky Higgins is having such success with it!

P.S. Just to be clear: Project Life is the current incarnation of something that started as Project 365. Becky has a lot of information on her blog about Project Life. It is very flexible! If you want an inspirational introduction, see this YouTube video. If you want a short and sweet intro to Project Life, maybe this Getting Started slideshow will help.

P.P.S. It is sold through amazon. Not through a multi-level marketing program. I love that is it sold this way because I have come to really dislike the MLM model. We have tried it with reluctantly with Creative Memories (still have too much stuff), Nikken and Melalueca over the last 20 or so years.

Ideas for a photo a day...


There is a list of 100 bits of life to consider adding to an album on The Mom Creative (Jessica Turner's) blog:
100 Bits of Life

And I think I saw a list of photo ideas. I searched and I don' t think this is it, but it a list of 365 photo ideas!
365ideas.pdf

Another list of photo ideas: Photo a day idea list.

And I just found this blog: CaptureYour365. They have a photo list for each month! that would be easy to visit and print out the list at the beginning of the month and try some of them.

A Different Bible Reading Plan....

Tim LaHaye's book, How to Study the Bible for Yourself, has a Bible reading plan that I find interesting. I have not followed it myself, but it does look very good.

I created a document that can be printed out and tucked into a Bible to help with tracking where you are in the plan. I uploaded the document to Scribd and it is here.

And it should embed here:

Bible Reading Plan LaHaye

(I only read one book in the Left Behind series. It really was not my cup of tea. But this book I found helpful and inspirational. Probably as much as any book, it encouraged me to read the Bible daily. Not that I always do that, but I do try.)
