Luke was maybe 2, maybe a little younger, but old enough to walk. It was spring or summer, the sun was out and it was warm that morning.

Thanks to the Alabama Legislature, I can be a teacher if I want. The best part is I don’t even have to go to school to do so.

Keep praying for Tucker

He’s pushing five months old, and Tucker Bradford has already dealt with more in life than most. The youngster has been through two open heart surgeries already. He’s been on life support more than once. Doctors first said they didn’t expect him to live.

Our governor stands up
