    You wrote some days ago about Audie Murphy. How old was he when defending his country? 16? 17? We most certainly need to accept and nurture that part of us that wants to climb mountains and cross oceans. I actually marvel at this kid.

  • That failed experience probably taught Abby Sunderland more about herself than thirty 'normal' years of acceptable Social behavior. Even though not 'alone,' I learned much about 'Self' where you know that if something goes dreadfully wrong, only God can save you, and whether or not we be worth the saving.

    Thanks for the article Sam. I agree, Geraldo, does play the emotional strings, for his followers.

    I personally loved the story of Abby Sunderland and was hoping that she would make the trek around the world. Unfortunately the weather had different plans.

    With the situation with Geraldo, it sounds to me like Geraldo (possibly going back to his days when he had his own talk show) was trying to make a story where there was none.

    I agree, Sam, Abby is what freedom looks like.
