HNT #68

HNT is upon us again.

A welcome escape from the rigors of day to day life.

While most of us strive to forget the stresses of work and seek temporary reprieves from our financial woes others suffer heavier fates.

We turn on our television and tune to the news to a constant flow of heartache and sorrow from far away places and involving people we may never know.

Sometimes the gift of geography doesn't isolate us though.

The killings at Viriginia Tech weigh heavy on the minds of many of us. Especially, I've noticed, among those of us who attend or work at universities of colleges.

My sympathies and prayers go out to those lives shattered by the events of that horrible morning and while I take things like this as an example of why we should treasure and value the fragile and tenuous lives we are given, I find myself strained to handle it all.

My head and my heart have taken all they can hold for a day or two so I seek escape in reading.

Join the fun and click the button. Go on click it now!

Press it! Preesss iiiiit!!!
