It was July 2012 in London. The U.S. Olympic Gymnastics team was trying to become the first American team to win the women’s team competition on international grounds – and the second to ever do it at all. Jordyn Wieber of DeWitt had already experienced the disappointment of failing to qualify for the all-around final for individual competition. Wieber had won the gold medal for that same event in the 2011 World Championships. She was also performing with a stress fracture in her right leg.

Veterans Day

For the country that was at war, Veterans Day can be very emotional and such was the case on November 11th this year. The special day set aside to honor the veterans, the men and women who sacrificed their time, and even their lives. Veterans’ day is a good opportunity to thank all these who serve the country. Our Savior Lutheran Church and School invited Jeremy Whittum as a guest speaker. He served with the Michigan Army National guard and said he never forgot the friends he knew in the Iraq war.
