Video - Day Eight - 50 States of Friends and Family

This is going to be a cool post.  I think.  I am going to attempt to name friends and family who live in all 50 states, or friends and family FROM all 50 states.  If you are in Arizona, Virginia, or Utah, you probably won't get named since that would be overwhelming.  Then watch the video.
