My Unforgettable Weekend with New Friends from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation

"During the weekend of October 15 and 16, I was privileged to travel with Oxford’s Muscogee (Creek) Nation guests to Etowah State Park in Cartersville, Georgia. I felt an array of emotions, but was mostly honored that complete strangers would allow me to spend time and get an intimate glimpse into their culture."

And last, but not least, standing side by side your four-year-old daughter saying the Pledge of Allegiance in tandem."

She makes heads turn with her companion, a baritone horn (a nine-foot brass tube that looks like a tuba but sounds like a trombone). And she credits her success to her faith, family, and a hiking trip 'gone bad.'”
