The Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, Alabama, is an amazing museum and educational center. As you view the exhibits, you can hear the personal stories of numerous people involved in the civil rights movement.
I was walking through the museum, and I was struck by the courage and solidarity of those fighting for equality. I was also struck by the ignorance and hatred of those fighting against equality.
If we are wrong, the Supreme Court is wrong.
If we are wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong.
If we are wrong, God Almighty is wrong.

I found this little guy hanging on a window the other night. I thought he was kind of cute, so I took a closeup picture of him.
I was at the library and stumbled upon this book. It looked intriguing, so I decided to give it a try. According to the book, I am easy going, adaptable, free-spirited, introverted, and impulsive.
I can’t say I’m surprised by these results, but at least the book was fun.
Camouflage designs are popular in the South. People wear camouflaged shirts, shorts, and pants. I’ve seen trucks with camouflage. I’ve even seen a camouflaged mailbox. However, this camouflaged refrigerator may be a bit much. What do you think?
Ben had knee surgery yesterday. The doctor stabilized the knee, so it will not pop out of place anymore. He also repaired a torn ligament.
I picked Ben up this afternoon and brought him home. He is doing as well as could be expected. His leg hurts and he limps a lot. He also spends a good deal of time crying.
I took the above picture about 30 minutes after he took his pain medication, so he was in a good mood.
I put tie-down stations around the house and in the back yard. This will allow Ben to walk around, but prevents him from getting on furniture and from running.
The other dogs have been great with Ben. They each walked slowly up to Ben and sniffed him. They come and check on Ben from time to time and gently lick his face.
Ben’s brothers are all behaving well; however, Ben is not allowed to be unsupervised around any of them. I don’t want any of our other dogs to accidentally hurt Ben or to mess with Ben’s stitches.
I know the next few days are going to be hard on Ben, but his family loves him and we are all going to take great care of him.
This is an excellent book. It’s about a young boy with severe autism and his mother that will stop at nothing to help her son find a place in the world.
The characters are relatable. The plot flows well and is easy to understand. The writing is descriptive and vivid. It truly is a book worth reading.
