Tiger Tadpole Dies

I heard so many stories about Tiger Tadpole during my childhood, I actually thought he was still alive, even though he died 30 years before I was born. He was my grandpa's grand uncle and very influential in my grandpa's life.

From the Joplin Globe; Joplin, Missouri; July 1, 1939; p2.


Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.

Cherokee Elder To Get a New Home

I know my readers will be delighted to hear that the Cherokee elder featured in "Our Moral Test" will be getting a new mobile home, courtesy of the Cherokee Nation.

Many thanks to all of you who have advocated for his needs by emailing your council members, sharing his story on social media, and praying for him. Your care and concern for a fellow Cherokee shows the compassion that exists among the Cherokee people.

Thanks also go out to those in leadership positions who worked behind the scenes to make this happen. Your willingness to listen to the people in this matter is greatly appreciated.


Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
