Each day I wish, and hope, no family ever had a need to use places like the Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Knowing that hospitals have been created specifically to help children, it breaks my heart. A world where we need hospitals just to take care of sick children is a world that's just unfair.

Thanksgiving. I remember when I was younger, everyone had to get all their Thanksgiving supplies before the holiday, because no stores were open on Thanksgiving. We all survived having stores closed, because we all headed out to be with loved ones. Now?  Stores are opening up earlier, and earlier on Thanksgiving Day. I'm not sure [...]
