I was just sitting here thinking about things that made the news outside our little corner of the universe. You know the "important" things like Octo-Mom, Kate & whats his name divorcing, The Airline pilot heroically landing on the Hudson, The little girl in Florida who's Mother is on trial for murdering her - Casey---and may get the death penalty. The other little girl in FL who is still missing - Haley who's 17 year old StepMother is suspect of foul play. Then there is the little girl whos Sunday school teacher stuffed her in a suitcase and threw her in a pond. You never hear the end about these horrible things. How about famous and good people who passed this year. Historical things happening. Ridiculous things, Sorrowful things, Happy and joyous things. What story sticks out with you? Doesn't have to be long - just a blurb or two so we can revisit and remind ourselves that we're not alone. If we truly learn from our mistakes - maybe 2010 will be a good year for all of us.
