  2. It grieves me to see young people with weapons strapped to their bodies, more so knowing they will use them.
    I did get a giggle at the newborn born with extra thumbs for texting.

  8. I'm with Anne Frank, who wrote in her diary something to the effect of In spite of everything, most people are good. Right now I'm thinking of the couple who ran to my rescue when I broke my back. They called an ambulance and did their best to comfort me until it arrived. I have no idea who they were and have never had the opportunity to thank them.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I fell on a sidewalk in Beverly Hills & broke my arm. I couldn't get the leverage to get up. People called an ambulance & several stayed with me until it came!!
