When I was in the 5th grade, we studied former Senator Jeremiah Denton and I’ve never forgotten this famous story about him.
Denton is best known for the 1966 televised press conference that he was forced into as an American POW by his North Vietnamese captors. He ingeniously used the opportunity to communicate successfully and to confirm for the first time to the U.S. Military (naval intelligence) and Americans that American POWs were being tortured in North Vietnam. He repeatedly blinked his eyes in Morse Code during the interview, spelling out the word, "T-O-R-T-U-R-E".
stuck in visiting family in Alabama until the end of July, I can’t help but think that I should have brushed up on my Morse Code skills before arriving. If I post any videos of myself over the next few weeks, watch my eyes. Somebody, please watch my eyes!

I’m thankful I didn’t drop the turkey on the floor this year.
Even though my floors are pristine.
