I saw the headline and skipped the story for fear of feeling what you guys have brought home.
I thought I had a bad day yesterday. This sharpens the focus. When this kid gets home safe, we should send him cards or something.
"There is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces... even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar." -- from Moby-Dick
