Interesting blog. I've been reading and plan to read more. I am a new GFC follower. I would like to extend an invitation to follow on my blog when you have a moment where you will find book reviews and stories about my crazy life. Donna

I Have a story about my experience and JUST saw this post! I would like to know if it's possible to still submit my story. I've been very upset about the attacks and want to tell those assailants how my life was SAVED. no joke.

Okinawa Club,

I'd be happy to add your story to the carnival. You may post a story at your blog and send the link to whattamisaid at gmail.com. Or, you can send a story to me and I will post it at What Tami Said.

Either way--we want to hear your voice.
