Very difficult to watch and experience what is happening now. May we regain hope and learn from it all in a good way as we go forward. Thank you to Judy Woodruff and PBS News Hour team for their work on their special this evening. Great interviews.
Couple of thoughts and photos to share. Didn’t take long for me to miss sharing. So...I’ve been telling Chuck this week that I’m taking up a new profession as a comedian, after my sister and father. They were both so great at telling a good joke. Laughter was really their medicine. As the oldest child I had too many responsibilities to find time to tell a funny joke. However after mom passed I made it a habit to have a funny story to share with my father when I visited. Knowing his history and what hardships he overcame, I learned to realize why humor was so necessary for him. In this photo I’m what maybe ten months old here. His love only grew stronger. I think I have his eyes. Mom loved babies, she really taught me how to talk to them! This little one is her great grand daughter and my great niece. Laughter and Love, two gifts from my parents. May we each carry a joyful story to share in these difficult times.
