Love our Dreamer friends!

This is a monumental day for not just our community but for the nation. We applaud the decision of the Supreme Court which will preserve and allow DREAMERS to stay in the country. This is a reprieve for 700k people, three of which I call coworkers and friends. We couldn’t be happier that they will be able to stay in the place they call home. DREAMERS are Americans. They are first responders, teachers, and students destined to make great contributions to their state, Sweet Home Alabama, and their nation.

Hoy es un día monumental no solo para nuestra comunidad, pero también para la nación. Aplaudimos la decisión de la Corte Suprema para preservar y permitir a los DREAMERS quedarse en nuestro país. Esta es una victoria para 650 mil personas, de los cuales 3 llamo compañ[email protected] de trabajo y [email protected]. No podemos estar más felices, de que ellos pueden quedarse en este lugar que llaman hogar. Los DREAMERS son americanos. Son maestros, paramédicos, doctores, enfermeras y estudiantes que están destinados a contribuir en su estado, Alabama y a su nación.

Space Explorers Children's Camp - great music and Bible stories about God's marvelous and immense creation and our responsibility to care for it which includes caring for each other. Classrooms also focused on the space theme in reading, writing and math. Michelle Blackwood led the children through trying to clean dirty water, but we concluded that it's best to never pollute the water. NASA's Christina Moraitis from Marshall Space Flight Center talked about the vast creation and a loving creator who cares about us.
