~~Wall of Fame~~

  Just a few of the people that have influenced me over my life. Some I have met, Some I’ve just admired their deeds.

Kandie Demarest - The strongest woman I have ever known.
Robert F Kennedy - Fighter for justice and the rights of the poor.
Martin Luther King Jr. - While I was too young to fully appreciate his words live, his devotion to truth and non-violent protest are virtues I embrace and what our government should honor with even more praise then they do the victories in battle.
Muhammad Ali - Stood up for his beliefs.
President Jimmy Carter in Africa. Doing what he has always done, work for a better world. Name another President who's done so much for this country and the world since being out of office. I can't think of one.
Helen Thomas - The people's bulldog. She asked the tough questions.
Harvey Milk. First gay elected official in California. Civil Rights leader and the Mayor of Castro street.

Barbara Lee - The only one who stood up against both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and Patriot Act.
Dan Berrigan - Anti-war hero.
Gwen Ifill - Journalist, television newscaster and author. Managing editor and moderator for Washington Week.

Jon Stewart - This country's court jester, when we could use him most.

Edward R Murrow. The last great journalist who truly understood the role of the press in a democratic society and made it his life’s mission to fill that role with truth, honor and dignity.
Walter Cronkite. The last great Television journalist, not just an anchor. He told it as it was as best that he knew it to be. Which is really all we ever asked for in our news.
