'Millions of people living as foes.
Maybe it's not too late
to learn how to love
and forget how to hate...
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train.' ~ Ozzy Osbourne

My Brother's Great Idea
We recently traveled to my brother's home in Southern Illinois. He had the idea to take the kids to a local park with a Dungeons and Dragons theme complete with a castle playground, wizards, dragons, goblins and archers. The park was a brilliantly done and a peaceful memorial to a young man who left this earth much too early in his life. The "Boo" Rochman memorial park was built by his family to remember a young man's life. The park is full of surprises. Private donations allow for the operations of the park and it was open to the public. Our kids loved the park almost as much as I did. I did have to spend some time unsuccessfully explaining the dungeons and dragons game. My explanation was met with shrugs as the kids all ran off to enjoy climbing and exploring the park.
