Jason Collins's Announcement: Family Discussion Gold

After school yesterday, by chance, my husband was home due to a late game rather than an after-school practice.

Valentine's Day—Let it Rip Your Heart Wide-Open

My Dying Friend

My Dying Friend
Several years ago, after hearing me speak at the local library, an acquaintance contacted me saying that she had woken up in the middle of the night with a strong feeling that I should visit her thirty-six year old brother-in-law who was dying of pancreatic cancer.
