I am now at the prime of my life and have been married for the past 25 years. Sickly at times, but wants to see the elixir vita, so that I will be able to see my grandchildren from my two boys.

Dear Auntie Patti Koh,
I have retired last year working from a major airline in Chicago in their call center. I am not yet that old, nor am I on the retirement age. But I have seen the writings on the wall, and so I retired early. A week after I have retired, my department was transferred to India and to the Philippines.
I was getting bored at home, doing nothing. I was always at the library, because reading is my passion. Then one day, my eldest son came home and we talked and he told me that I need to go and find another job or any field of work that is not full time. Last summer, I found a job -- working for the mentally handicapped.
It was a very challenging work. We have to go on a very extensive three months training and I made the training. I am now certified to work for the mentally handicapped and my name is now in the list with the (OIG) Office of the Inspector General for the State of Illinois.
Then, I have decided to go further and study the first step in the field of Nursing. So, I took the (CNA) Certified Nursing Assistant class at College of Lake County, in Illinois. I have done the the classroom instructions and now doing my clinical in one of the accredited caring institution of the College.
And so Auntie Patti Koh, I am sharing you some pictures of me and some of my classmates in clinical. We all do the clinical from 5:00 PM till 10:00 PM three times a week. I love it and I find it very challenging. I hope I make it. I will be taking the government exams this 18April, 2009.
Wish me luck.
Sincerely yours,

“you make me despair for your soul”, so said this man from UK. how can this man say things like that when i think he is the one who does not have any “soul” at all. “you make me despair for your soul” are spoken only by those who knows the boundaries of morality. “me” when spoken by a person who has done things that is beyond the boundaries of morality need not say and use “your soul” when he speaks. how can this man look deep inside one “soul” when i think he does not have a “soul” of his own to brag about.

Your comment, I believe?
Explain . . .
So what do you think was going on?
You think they were telling the truth?
Are you totally naive?
Are you just another feeble mind - to join the mass consciousness - afraid to stand up and be counted?
Come on - you are worth more than that.
I suggest you re-evaluate your stance on this topic - especially in the light of all that has been happening recently - all the covering up.
Why do you not believe me when I say I have a video of a fake scar?
What makes you jump to the defence of criminals?
Please answer.
Thank you.
