a whirl of a weekend

This weekend went by so fast without a whole lot of rest but filled with a whole lot of fun.

A snippet of my weekend includes:
3 balloon events
Counterculture
Flying Star
Getting families to and from church
Walking 2 miles for CROP walk holding the hand of a 5 year old
Attending my first "dunking" baptism
Being "official" photographer at said baptism
riding to santa fe and back
attempting to go to a corn maze (it was closed)
Going instead to Chuck E. Cheese (where even adults can be a kid)
Then with friends to Bennigan's

It was a seriously full but fun weekend, I really enjoyed every minute of it.

In other news, I would encourage you to go and sign this Amnesty International petition that was just forwarded to me by a friend. As we continue to move into the 21st century and start defining what it means to be an American, I encourage you to stand up for human rights and help restore dignity to those who are imprisoned. It is our right and our duty to increase awareness about issues such as this. This is not the America that I believe in.

From Amnesty International:

The America I Believe In doesn't torture people or use cruel, inhumane treatment. . . doesn't hold people without charge, without fair trials, without hope, and without end. . .doesn't kidnap people off the street and ship them to nations known for their brutality. . .doesn't condone prisoner abuse and excuse high-ranking government officials from responsibility for that abuse. . .doesn't justify the use of secret prisons. . .and does not rob people of their basic dignity.

I'm joining with Amnesty International USA to restore The America I Believe In. The America I Believe In leads the world on human rights.

I'm committing to tell friends and family about the campaign. I'm also committing to contacting my members of Congress and my local media to tell them that the America I Believe In defends human rights and justice for all.
