Recently a friend of my family lost an 11 year battle with cancer. At the celebration of life service, the bishop spoke of this friend's ability to savor life. He had the strength to fight the cancer and continue to do all the things he loved - support the church, the Pride of the Southland marching band, and the Boy Scouts in addition to being a father, husband, and a lawyer.

We see examples of this sort of strength all the time - including this 12 year old boy who fought cancer almost all of his life. You see the strength in the individual, but also reflected in the actions of those around them like the Marines in the story.

It gives me hope.

The Flu is for the Avians

The day before the flu hit me, I ran 11 miles at a sub 9 minute pace. More than two weeks later, I ran just 7 miles and I was almost 40 seconds per mile slower.

Steve Jobs - Choice of Treatment

And while medical science may not be perfect, it is why I play the odds with traditional treatments. For example, I will continue to get flu shots. According to the CDC, the vaccine would not cause me to be sick and my illness started before the two weeks needed for the shot to build up my immunity.

The Flu

I have it. I don't like it. Regular programming will resume when I get better.
