I can't find out a thing about this picture. It must be in the mid to late 1800s. But look at the derbies, hats both men and women!

We attended church Sunday Morning here in Kissimmee at ‘The Rock’. It is 90+% young folk who worship ‘Wide open’, LOL. It is a nice place multicultural and very friendly. The auditorium seats about 6000, much less than that in attendance but it is blocked off so the crowd did not look small in the big area. I tried to guess the attendance and it looked like 600-800. Not a small number, that is for sure. It is a fairly new church, I am sure it will grow, these kids are infectious with their enthusiasm.
Since I was not raised with flashing lights and LOUD music in church, it is not my cup of tea. But it is good to see so many young folk enthused and not on drugs, booze and the wild life. As I have said many times. This country has so many good folk in it, we will work out the kinks that come with growth and technology. I love this country, the USA, and together we will make it. Hang in there and think positive.
I am sure you readers in other countries are proud of your country, as you should be. Many areas get a bad view of the USA from the Media, but not much can be done about that. WE as a country give more to the underprivileged countries that any country in the world. Our citizens also volunteer to go work in areas of disasters. We have some good folk, I am very proud of the USA.
Listening and reading the news you would think the END is near for the USA. HOWEVER many, like my parents, lived thru the Great Depression. Our family lived thru WWII. SO, looking back this country and the world has faced worse and survived. The UK and most of Europe; Japan and Most of Korea was devastated. WE all made it back from the brink of disaster. I ain’t about to give up the ship.
I do not believe too many conspiracy theories and I take the news with a grain of salt. I can only manage my small personal problems. I will have to let the big guys and GOD handle the rest.
