The Sunday Post

It was a beautiful day in Fredericksburg, Virginia today. The sun was shining and the clouds that briefly floated overhead were not responsible for the gloom settling over many of us. It was everything else going on in the world. I don’t have anything more intelligent to contribute to this conversation, but I know I…

The (Easter) Sunday Post
