Rather than expose Haiti for what it is, the poorest place of the western world, directors are finding priceless beauty in the stories behind a selection of photographs depicting the life of Haitian children. The exhibit named Haitian Heroes initiated by Robert Felgentreu celebrates the courage, love, and pride of the people of Haiti primarily focused on potential for good things in their future. Their hope is to change the way Haiti is perceived by the first world, still raising awareness to the issues while collecting donations from those who will believe in their brighter tomorrow just around the bend. Experience the movement, give generously.


Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
