Compliment: From Alkahest Artists & Attractions, Inc.

"You guys are simply the best. There needs to be a photo of you two in the dictionary right next to the word "Class," and another one next to the word "Ethics." And I couldn't be more serious."

Thank you for ALL!

In Memory of Dr. Richard Borden, featured in War Bonds.

Dr. Borden's inspirational story, shared in "War Bonds", told of how he watched his best friend die beside him on the beaches on D-day. He also explained how it inspired him to help hundreds of other men that day. In Civilian life, Dr. Borden delivered over 2000 babies in Morehead City, NC.  His ability to give life, joy and inspiration, even though he had seen the heart of darkness, inspired us to continue to have faith, even when the world around us looks bleak. Thank you Dr. Borden.  Your spirit still lives within us. -Serena and David zum Brunnen EbzB Productions.







A note from his daughter...

David and Serena,

Just a note of hello -
We loved the War Bonds show at Morehead City a number of years ago.
I took my father Dr Richard Borden and he enjoyed it so much.
Thank you for sharing his WWII experiences in your show.
I hope you are both well and have a wonderful 2013.

Regards,
Martha
