Dancing through the internet this morning, I happened upon this question:
Do you plan to watch the State of the Union address tonight? If so, what issue do you most want to see President Obama address?
Today is my Aunt Irene's birthday. Aunt "I" is my mom's older sister, she is 86 years old. As we chatted this morning, we spoke of all the sadness in today's world. Yet another young person I know, took her own life last weekend. A sweet 27 year-old young lady, with her entire future ahead of her. Aunt "I" shared that she lived through the Depression and finds today so much more troubling. We spoke of my recent surgery and agree that medical knowledge and conditions are so much better. But where is our sense of community, our patriotism, our genuine love for one another? Are we any better off? Our bank accounts may be fatter, but are we still robust in the riches of our hearts?
