Someone took me to a free concert at Lipscomb University the other year. Amy Grant and Kix Brooks performed, among others.
Gretchen Wilson sang a ballad written by Rivers Rutherford and sounded like an angel. That was the night I realized Gretchen is the real deal vocally.
The other remarkable thing that happened that night was my introduction to an organization called The Folds of Honor Foundation. The founder gave a short message about families of military members who have been disabled or killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he spoke also about the way decisions in life define a person.
I was moved by it all, but more than that, I knew without a second thought that I would become involved with Folds of Honor.
