Sun-Beams is a collection of links to stories, articles, photos, or videos I have come across that I believe will inspire, inform, or encourage you, as well as my favorite photo posted on my other blog, Violet Film, from the past week.
Man with Down syndrome gains right to vote – Had it occurred to you before that he wouldn’t have been able to vote?
Comedian Wayne Brady Insults Trig Palin at Roseanne Roast – It’s not unusual for comedians to do things like Brady did, but I expect better from a clean comic who’s a regular on Sesame Street.

Have you voted for Nathan yet in the Most Beautiful Eyes Contest? If not, do it now! 🙂
