Hello Civil War World,

   I thought I'd mosey on back here and see what was up with the Civil War World. The older members will probably remember me, and the new guys wont have a clue who I am. So guess what, I'm all grown up now. haha!! Truly I am and I have become quite active in my community. I don't know if any of you guys heard about the Confederate Statue that got knocked over in Reidsville, NC, or the HPAC or the Historical Preservation Action Committee that is fighting to get it back up. If you did, I'm one of the original founding members of the group and I am quite proud of it. I have had my moments on the local news and spread the news about this where ever I can. We never can seem to have to much support on this issue.

I am also in Mortuary School. Yeah I know I was on the fast track to law school but I found that to be to boring and way to long for me. I prefer something more hands on. The only problem is, at such a young age, and being a female I get a lot of crap from other people for wanting to do this. Apparently everyone thinks this is a "man's job". I disagree. Its also incredibly hard trying to get a funeral home interested enough in you so that they want you for their apprentice. I truly believe that is the hardest part of all. So, enough about me. What is up with all you guys?? I'm hoping to see some familiar "faces" in this crowd LOL.....:P
