Obama Finally Comes Through

Talking with Ghosts~

 

 

She sits at times as a little girl might sit. She talks to the ghosts of children she may have known over 80 years ago. She smiles and giggles and waves her hands, almost as if she is playing hide and seek. At other times, she seems to be… Read full post »
