"Poor me, I am writing the mcat next week!"
The news today has given me a reminder that I needed...of the fact that my life is so good I ought to be singing from the rooftops not wallowing in self pity.
Nothing like a good dose of reality to remind one of all the things I ought to be thankful for.
For starters, the fact that my brothers are alive.
I won't ramble on about it here as well, but another three Canadian soldiers died today in Afghanistan. They were all from my brother Russ' Battallion. No matter what your feelings are about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, hearing about young men and women dying is saddening and frustrating, so I opted out of my usually non-political postings and made one today on ohtanninbound in their honor.
My heart and prayers go out to their families.
