John, that takes me back to the question you asked Donald Miller about K-Fed and Britney break up. I still laugh about that everytime I see them in the news. I love the way you think! I was watching the Anderson Cooper and he was covering the killing of Monks in Myanmar. So sad. I struggle with what I can do for this situation. I feel my money is not enough. I struggle with God's will for me daily. Thank you for your blog.
