Trying to Stay Healthy

  I’ve spent half of my life in and out of hospitals having surgery after surgery, and to this day, I still have health issues.

What We Believe In

Can we just believe in being a nation of good people? Can we believe that we will only treat others how we would like to be treated? Can we be a nation of polite words, smiles, courtesy?

Beaching It With The Kids

I recently was on the beach with a few friends and their children. It brought back so many wonderful memories of my parents bringing us to the shore every summer.

A Touching Story
