Thought for the day

"I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered." -- Martin Luther King 

We Are The Champions

The 1961 World Figure Skating Championships were held in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and naturally, the United States wanted to send its national team to showcase its talented skaters to the rest of the world. This included 16-year-old Lawrence Owen, who had just won the US Figure Skating Championships and graced the cover of Sports Illustrated; Her 20-year-old sister, Maribel, is a U.S. National Pairs Champion; his mother and coach, an Olympic bronze medalist; and Maribel's pairing partner, Dudley Richards. In addition to the Owen clan, Olympic medalists Gregory Kelly, Steffi Westerfeld, and Rod Lee Michelson and champions Bradley Lord, Dee Dee Sherbloom and Larry Pierce also boarded the flight to Prague.
