    Thanks, Gerard– I think we all needed reminders of the goodness that is still out there.

    As long as there is still goodness in you—as far as the rest of the world is concerned—there will still be goodness out there.

    Far more good going on in this world,,, then bad. Life is what we make it. How we live it.

    Speaking of people who’ve done good things, Charlie Watts, one of the original Rolling Stones died today, age 80. You changed my world. Rocking into his 80th birthday. How cool is that
