To My Good Friends

Thank you, thank you to all those who followed our medical downs and ups during the last month.  Thanks, especially to those of you who shared prayers, good thoughts, and encouragement through your comments.  I know i should thank each one of you individually; but please know that you have been thanked in  my heart.  From now on, no news can be considered good news and i will not share it unless patticularly good, bad, unusual or funny,  God bless you all.

Answer for question 4266.

If you saw two people fighting on a street corner, would you try to step in and break it up or stay out of it? Why would you make that choice?
"Hey now! Stop that" is probably a better answer than i could come up with. There is not enough information in the question to tell me exactly what i would (or should) do. Doing nothing would be irresponsible, but so might intervention. The last time this happened to me, i was in charge of the place where the fight occurred. One person was angry and drunk and challenging several people; the other was trying, unsuccessfully, to calm him down. I did not know what to do but felt i had to do something. I get between the two men and put my hand gently on the aggressor's shoulder. He turned his attention toward me and i guided him slowly out into the parking lot. He had been yelling about racism so i started talking about his heritage, etc, After about ten minutes his wife and friends came to gather him up. Was i right or just lucky? I'll never know.
