99 Balloons for Eliot

This may not be a post that you want to really get into. You know those commercials on TV that are about dying and starving children. They are the ones that I change the channel on because they are too sad and painful to watch. It's almost better that I don't know about them because then I can live a happy day. Well on the Oprah show this week there was a story about a little boy that had everyone in tears. I wasn't in the room for the story I came in at the tears. I went to the Oprah web site and wanted to know what it was about. As I was playing the video my husband asked me to turn it off because he said that he couldn't listen to it. I stumbled to find the ear phones so that I could continue. Although it was so hard and so heart breaking, I watched it and I too was in tears. It is about sadness but it is also about love and incredible human spirit and strength and the amazing ways in which some can seize the day and make every moment count.

It is here for you to view if you want to. If you don't want to its OK too.
