Thanks everyone for your comments and e-mail about the last post. One of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis said, "We read to know we're not alone." It's reaffirming to find out that we're not alone in our thoughts and we're more together than we realize. I appreciate your feedback.
I almost feel like I need another day to recover from Memorial Day. What a dichotomous holiday. On the one hand, it's an anguishing, grieving type of day. On the other, it's a "Buy one get One Free" day at Macy's.
A great Memorial Day story broke Monday about 42 Iraqis who were freed by US soldiers just outside of Baghdad. Some had been tortured for months while hanging from the ceiling. According to the article, the Iraqi's were taken prisoner because they were beginning to trust and listen to the American soldiers.
Wow. Hollywood couldn't come up with a better story line.
