“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.”
– Marian Wright Edelman
A Home in Carlton Landing – 5″ x 8″ Watercolor and Sharpie
This house is across the street from The Meeting House at Carlton Landing. When my hubby saw this painting, he said “They really need to get a new lumber yard. They are not getting very straight boards.” Isn’t he funny. It is a perfectly straight and beautiful home. It has just been “Beth-ized”. The homes that are popping up in Carlton Landing are so wonderful. When you look inside them, you find all kinds of fun little surprises. They are truly unique.
About Marian Wright Edelman
American activist Marian Wright Edelman, who founded the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) as a voice for poor, minority, and handicapped children, was the first African-American woman to practice law in Mississippi. She was born in 1939 in South Carolina. Her father, a Baptist preacher, died when she was 14; his last words to her were, “Don’t let anything get in the way of your education.” She graduated from Yale Law School in 1963. Her many awards include the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
