hmm - not much to update - been dealing with the back pain - it is slowly improving - which I am extremely grateful.  Still in pain, but its all encompassing grip has begun to lessen.  After finishing Unbroken, realized that I have not done really anything besides listen to my late grandfather's stories of the war.

The following link is any easy way to get involved, and its as simple as writing an email letter - the form is all there.  What this illness has always reminded me is that sometimes you can't make anything better, but knowing you are not alone is a powerful dose of medicine.  So that's my advice, if you have a friend, family member, neighbor that you don't know "what" to do - you really don't have to Do anything - a kind word goes the longest of ways...

So I took my own advice, and sent one of the letters to one of our soldiers - this current war we are fighting, and its ill advised beginning I think made me lose sight that those military personal they carry out orders, and they need to know that they are not alone, even when so many disagreed with the mission.  To my cousin Dana who has taken the time at her work to organize care packages to be sent out to soldiers, I am really proud of you - and your quiet acts of volunteering that you have always done.

So, here is the link, its easy to send kind words...
