Troy hasn't stopped fighting and neither should we. If there is a demonstration in your area, please attend. If there's not, grab a sign and start one. People can also call Judge Penny Freesemann at 912 652 7252 or fax her at 912 652-7254 and ask her to withdraw the death warrant. We should never mourn when there is still time to fight.

So, after a year or so of plotting, it's really happening - I'm going to be heading to Nicaragua this winter for a month to do Spanish immersion! More to come, but I was so excited that I wanted to share, and also I wanted to know if any one has recommendations of books (nonfiction or fiction) about Nicaragua or Central America. Also, I want to bring some young adult books in Spanish to read while I'm there, so recommendations on that front are welcome as well. Thanks in advance!
