QUOTATION: People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing. - Walter H. Judd

A message from the Callaway home on this Thanksgiving Day 2004...
On this happy day, we are thankful for our blessings. We pray for renewed belief in ourselves and each other and hope this bond of love will expand to envelop the entire universe.
Happy ThanksgivingGettin' together to smile and rejoice
And eatin' and laughin' with folks of your choice.
And kissin' the girls and declarin' that they
Chattin' and braggin' a bit with the men
Livin' the wholesome and old-fashioned cheer
Greetings fly fast as we crowd through the door
Just as we did when the youngsters were small
Father's a little bit older but still
Here we are back at the table again
Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer
Home from the east land and home from the west
Out of the sham of the cities afar
Here we can talk of ourselves and be frank
Give me the end of the year and if its fun
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest
Hear the old voices still ringin' with song
See the old table with all its chairs
