As parents, we try to raise our kids in an environment full of love, kindness and laughter. We teach them to be gentle and peace-loving, and tell them that fighting or hurting another person whether with action or words is unacceptable. And then they go out into the world and see this harsh reality-- that not all people are kind, or gentle, or peace-loving.
There is a constant debate about the benefits of getting a flu shot and from having given so many flu shots in the past, I can pretty much put people into 3 categories: 1. Need it, want it; 2. Need it, don't want it; 3. Don't need , don't want it.

Last Saturday, I woke up in the middle of the night with a burning need to write. And so I did, therefore, this blog.
