Powerful Words

Last night, Barack Hussein Obama was re-elected president of the United States of America! His words were inspiring, motivating, empowering!

Here are a few things that really stuck out to me. These words are powerful and I believe they can change our nation!

"This country has more wealth than any nation, but that's not what makes us rich.
We have the most powerful military in history, but that's not what makes us strong.
Our university, our culture, are all the envy of the world but that's not what keeps the world coming to our shores.
What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth!
The belief that our destiny is shared.That this country only works when we except certain obligations to one another and the future generations so that the freedom that so many Americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibility as well as rights and among those are love and duty and charity and patriotism. That's what makes America great! "

"If you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disable, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try. "

"I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America!"

TCK shares the love

Oh how we love spending time together. We solve the problems of the world and each other while thoroughly completing whatever task is at hand. We made a lot of treats last night for EarthDance Farms, Farmers Formal. Hopefully people taste the TCK love in every bite.

EarthDance knows how to party!

Each year EarthDance Farms has a big fund raiser called Farmers Formal. This event is what helps fund the Farm, it's staff and the incredible Organic Farming Apprenticeship Program. I can honestly say this program is life changing. Not only do you learn all about how to grow beautiful crops organically, but the people you meet and relationships you build along the way are priceless.

2012 Apprenticeship Class (Farmies)

TCK visited the farm in June for Faith's Birthday

 When The Catty Kitchen heard EarthDance was in need of dessert donations for their big event, we eagerly volunteered!

So tonight, we bake! We are preparing three items - Organic/Vegan Carrot Cake Bites, Vegan Coconut Peanut Butter Cookies, and Pumpkin Mini Muffins. Check back to see pics from our baking extravaganza as well as a few shots from Farmers Formal.
