the Boston Marathon, and a day of welcoming spring with your
family; it will never be the same. I don't know about any of you,
but I cannot hold back the tears. Watching on TV has been one
rollercoaster of a ride. There is a certainty in this horrific
event...compassion and kindness wins out every time. We witnessed
ordinary citizens running along side the EMS, Police, Firefighters etc...just to help...to
give aid and comfort. Runners who kept running to give blood; some
ran back to the ER rooms to perform surgery! AND THEN I READ THIS,
and lost it!!!
"Five K9 Parish Comfort Dogs (golden
retrievers) which is based at a Lutheran church in Chicago are headed to Boston. These are the same dogs that
have been a stable source of comfort for those children in Newtown. But earlier this month they also
went to Wadsworth, Illinois, where a school bus carrying 30
children tipped over." (None of the children were seriously
harmed.) "They made their way around Boston Wednesday, visiting some of the
176 victims of Monday's marathon attack. Maggie, Addie, Luther,
Ruthie, and Isaiah are comfort dogs, dispatched to various
communities in the aftermath of tragedies. They're trained like
service dogs, but focus on providing emotional support.
"The dogs work for about two to three
hours at a time, and then we make sure to give them a break,"
Lizzie Brose, a handler for the K-9 Parish Comfort Dogs, told BuzzFeed.
"They really do absorb the feelings of the people around
Debbie Custance, a London psychologist who's studied the
empathy of dogs, explained to National Geographic that during times
of crisis, interactions with humans involve "expectations and
judgments," but interactions with dogs are refreshingly
simple. "[It's] a very uncomplicated, non-challenging
interaction with no consequences," she said. "And if
you've been through a hard time, it's lovely to have that."
After visiting patients at Tufts Medical Center on Wednesday, the dogs were
stationed on the porch of First Lutheran Church - a half-mile away from the
marathon explosion site. They were petted and embraced by dozens of
passersby. "I saw the explosion, and as one would be, I was
incredibly shaken up," said Nick Holmes, an acting student at Emerson College. "But I saw online yesterday
that the dogs were going to be at the Lutheran church, and I was
like, 'I know what I'm doing after class tomorrow.' Because I need
(excerpts from Jessica Testa, BuzzFeed Staff)
I am not the only one who has
experienced when hit with a crisis be it either emotional or
physical, the one who never leaves your side is that furry friend
(the one on all fours). I am continually blown over at their
compassion, ability to heal us, and their intuitiveness. May they
heal the hearts of all whether in uniform or not, to sit quietly
beside an injured soul, to greet, lick, nudge or look longingly
into your eyes...Animals are there for us!
That did it for me, where do I
donate to continue to have these dogs help others!

MASTER THE TRANSITION OF A LIFETIME
With Mark Singer,
Editor, Sallie Felton et al
The Six SECRETS To A Happy
Retirement, How To Master the Transition of a Lifetime
5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a comprehensive work on living well
in retirement, March
Too many books about
retirement are "nuts & bolts" -- lots of data. Yes,
that's helpful, but I've never seen a book that takes into account
the qualitative issues the way "The Six Secrets to a Happy
Retirement" does. This book offers whole new ways of thinking
about retirement -- and that's sorely needed. Love it!
5.0 out of 5 stars - Excellent retirement resource! March 28, 2013
I have been in the financial business, and working in
retirement for many years and have always thought there was a lack
of good information to really prepare someone for retirement. It's
not just about saving enough, it's about trying to live WELL in
retirement. Mark has compiled information from a number of experts
to help you do just that. I thought I knew a lot, but I couldn't
believe the new information I learned going through this book. If
you want your retirement to be a happy one, no matter what your
age, this book is for you.

"It made a real difference in my life - I
am currently working on submitting two books that were sitting in
my computer. Thanks particularly for the realization that the
clutter wasn't just the books on my floor, but the books in my head
- a general book stoppage! [Sallie's] ideas on organization, and
particularly on taking things one very small piece at a time, have
been helpful daily." -Deborah A
