Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

America, the USA, the United States of America!

Living in America means you call America home. Not talking about a structural dwelling... Massachusetts farmhouse, New York City apartment, Colorado mountain cabin, California bungalow, Florida beach cottage, Texas ranch, Alaska igloo, Tennessee lodge...but the USA as the most important place in your life. As with the dwelling in which you reside, there is (or should be) a sense of pride surrounding the state in which you live.

How much do you know about each state of the USA?
