  • I must consider myself naive. When I was growing up, my grandmother would kneel at the bedside with me and my uncle and we would say our prayers together. My mother would stop by my room each night and ask me whether I had said my prayers or not. My prayer was a simple prayer. You have probably heard it many times yourself. It goes, “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. God bless everyone.”

  • On April 25, 1898, when Carrollton resident Sarah Eva Howe was 14, the United States declared war on Spain to halt Spain’s empire-building in the western hemisphere – my basic understanding of a complex world situation.

    Sarah read about the Spanish-American War in the Carrollton Democrat and in magazines. She heard conversations about it at school and at her family’s dinner table. Still, from her perspective, the war seemed to have little effect on her family and friends in Carrollton, Ky.
