To the grandchild: enjoy his stories. Record them if possible. They're priceless.

To grandpa: thank you for your years of service. You, my sir, are a hero & make America grand. Hats off to you!

The UUs make it quite easy for everyone to come together under the common goal of being good human beings. I'm Jewish, not practicing, but feel more at home during a UU service (the handful of times I went) because of, well, their unity. Not in your face, not trying to convert, but acceptance of a greater goal. I do my best to teach this to my own kids as well. The big picture. Yes, we're Jewish, but we're human first - let's concentrate of humanitarian aspects, not trying to "win" people. So far I have 2 great teens that fully support this "crazy idea." Not too shabby.

Have you ever had moments where you could hear something (more than say a rattling bass sound that produces feeling as well)?
