I recently returned from Lake George in Upstate, NY. Gorgeous lake. By chance, I met a woman on the 4th of July who told me her son was a marine and was shot twice in the head on his last tour in the Middle East. He's come a long way. She gave me some of his rubber bracelets and I did notice a guy in a wheelchair nearby. Sad news, there is a website telling his story. She was a very nice woman, I never would have met her if I stayed home.
Actually, some people are better off staying home. They are sticks in the mud who like to spoil things for others.
