Rest In Power Leslie Jordan

Leslie Jordan passed away and our world is a less better place. He was a proud native Chattanoogan who went to Brainerd High School and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He was also a gay man growing up in the buckle of the Bible belt who went on to bring light and laughter to the world as an award winning actor. He also kept our spirits high during the early days of the pandemic right here in Chattanooga. He was a great person who we will be very missed. Rest in power, Leslie.

Happy Diwali, The Festival Of Lights

Diwali is the Indian “festival of lights”—a holiday that celebrates the triumph of good over evil. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on October 24. Though technically religious, it’s also become a cultural event in North America that’s celebrated with sweets and special foods.

To all my friends celebrating, have a blessed time of light, love, peace and community.
