In memoriam...

The Cherokee Nation, yea all of our indigenous Peoples, lost a great leader several days ago. Wilma Mankiller, 64, crossed over after battling pancreatic cancer...and successfully leading the Cherokee Nation from December 1985 to 1995. Former President Bill Clinton awarded her the Medal of Freedom in 1998, a tribute to her impressive work building up the well-being of her peoples. I'll leave it at that for now...her memorial is being held today in Oklahoma. She was a great Spirit, a great Woman, and a great Leader, in every sense of those words. Aho.

Oops, Bobaloo. MemoriAm. Too nice a post to have something misspelled twice in large fonts and bolded!

Thank you, my grammar Captain! Too, I had to correct the birth year as I was off by 10! :-) Enjoy the pollen on your porch!
