The Kids are Alright

I'm here! I'm here!

I've just got my hands full with Christmas, commuting, and a cold, which is great for alliteration but not great for celebrating the holidays. For fear of infecting Mom O., who has health issues, with a mean little chest-then-headcold that blossomed on Christmas Day, I had to miss Christmas Dinner at her place; ah well, it sucked, but they made me up a plate, and as I said to Husband I'd rather miss Christmas Dinner than have everyone remember it as "the year 'Ronnie' put Mum in the hospital". Except for that, Christmas was absolutely wonderful as usual and I'll have some of our more offbeat and interesting gifts to share with you in a near-future post.

For the moment, I wanted to share a news article that conveniently covers not one but two stories I had intended to blog about last year, but I never found the time to do so. Both are stories that are fine antidotes to occasional despair about the state of the nation's youth; here's some strong evidence that The Kids are Alright.

Wow! Amazing what an impact one young woman will have on the lives of literally hundreds of others!
