    Painful to watch, to put faces to the headlines. I talked to a friend tonight who goes to the middle school here...her lunch fee is reduced, it's .40 a day for a hot lunch... so hard to fathom a family that can't afford even that.

    Ashamed of and embarrassed by the Americans in the crowd who cried out for letting a person die who couldn't pay for healthcare. And that no one present said what is obvious--The choice at that point is clearly between someone making money or someone dying. How can we consider someone being paid for a service as more important than the life of a human being? A mother, a father, a son, a daughter? How many of them would have cried out to let the person die if it had been a child?

    Is it a valid thought that maybe the phrase to fight for isn't that everyone has a "right to health care" but that health care for everyone is right? That compassion and giving and valuing life is more important than the money we spend to save that life?

    I'm brand new at this, trying to learn.
