    ...story was given to us for a reason, no less relevant today. Imo, no matter how civilized and progressive we get as a society, it's best for the individual to expect nothing and behave as if living in a jungle full of manageable threats. It's my way of never being disappointed or unprepared.

    When we're hit with health issues we can become truly defenseless - the orphans and widows we're called to comfort and care for. People who are connected to a church have an advantage and I think that's one reason our civic services evolved to where we are now. My household is supporting an ex of mine and had I known I would be doing this I would not have retired so early, it was not in our budget. I'm glad you have someone to help you.  

    Nevertheless, there are many good Americans working for health care for you and people like you. We'll get there although there's no clear sign yet if now's the time...  

    HR 676 - Health care reform we can believe in - national single-payer NOW.
