XMILE_120427_02.JPG: Ethel Percy Andrus (1884-1967):
Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired educator, founded AARP in 1958 to promote her philosophy of productive aging. She influenced the marketplace to develop innovative solutions for social needs. Today, her organization promotes independence, dignity and purpose for those age 50 and older, helps people live their best lives, and encourages everyone "to serve and not to be served."
"What we do, we do for all."
XMILE_120427_08.JPG: George Edmund Haynes (1880-1960)
Ruth Standish Baldwin (1863-1934)
Recognizing the need for a national infrastructure to support the black urban population through employment, education and advocacy, Ruth Standish Baldwin and Dr. George E. Haynes founded the National Urban League in 1910. The urban league movement is compelling evidence of the power of finding common ground for common good: A stepping stone toward economic self-reliance and civil rights.
"We should expect each individual to be treated on the basis of his worth and conduct rather than on his color."
-- Dr. George E. Haynes
Wikipedia Description: The Extra Mile
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Extra Mile - Points of Light Volunteer Pathway is a national monument installed in the sidewalks of Washington D.C.. It is located along 15th Street and G Street. The honorees of the monument are people who "through their caring and personal sacrifice, reached out to others, building their dreams into movements that helped people across America and throughout the world". Each honoree has a custom-made bronze medallion installed along the path. It currently has 20 such monuments, but there are plans to extend it down to 11th Street and back up F Street so it forms a mile-long pathway of 70 medallions. The monument was dedicated on October 14, 2005 in a ceremony attended by George H.W. Bush and Laura Bush.

2012 photos: Equipment this year: My mainstays were the Fuji S100fs, Nikon D7000, and the new Fuji X-S1. I also used an underwater Fuji XP50 and a Nikon D600. The first three cameras all broke this year and had to be repaired.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Shepherdstown, WV, Richmond, VA, and Williamsburg, VA),
a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean,
another week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana), and
my 7th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc).
Ego strokes: I had a picture of Miss DC, Ashley Boalch, published in the Washington Post. I had a photograph of the George Segal San Francisco Holocaust memorial used as the cover of Quebec Francais (issue 165). Not being able to read French, I'm not entirely sure what the article is about but, hey! And I guess what could be considered to be a positive thing, my site is now established enough that spammers have noticed it and I had to block 17,000 file description postings for Viagra and whatever else..
Number of photos taken this year: just below 410,000.
