Kudos to a fearlees six year old Bridger Walker. The young boy put himself between an attacking German Shepherd and his four year old sister to protect her from harm. He ended up needing 90 stitches on his face and head, but the brave little boy is fine.

I read that story. He is one impressive little boy.

In case anyone missed this one, 74 year old Richard Wilbanks jumped into a pond and pried an alligators jaws open to rescue his pet dog. He didn't even lose his cigar while doing it. Man, dog, and gator are all fine.

Reading the article brought tears.

I've been following this man's story for a couple of years as it appeared in the news over time. All I can say what a faithful brother to have persevered for so long.

Finally, justice for a gay man that was long overdue.

Sadly, the case does not appear to be cut-and-dry as indicated in the article I posted. The defendant’s lawyers are saying that the guilty plea was the defendant’s attempt to escape his haranguing wife, thinking that he would get ten years away from her… and he was good with that.

That’s one hell of an escape attempt if it’s true but it doesn’t further the murder case, or offer surcease for the brother.

On Monday, I went to pick up my son, Max, from ballet, and he was standing outside the studio with another boy from his group. They were holding their hands together when I pulled up to the building, but Max let go and quickly said "Bye!" when I called out to him. When Max got into the car, this was the exchange that happened:

Me: "Did you have fun today?"

Max: "Yeah!"

Me: "Glad to hear it. Do you like your classmates?"

Max: "Uh-huh!"

Me: "Is there anyone you like more than others?"

Max: *pause* "I like Michael."

Me: "Is Michael nice?"

Max: "Yeah. We help each other with stretching and warm-ups and stuff."

Me: "Did Michael forget his gloves today, or something?"

Max: *giggles* "Yeah! He's really funny like that. He's always missing stuff, or forgetting things. He said his hands were cold."

Me: "So you offered to keep his hands warm, huh? That was nice of you."

Max: *blushes a bit* "Yeah, I guess. But it made my tummy feel weird, though."

Me: "You mean, like butterflies? Do you think you might like Michael as more than a friend?"

Max: *nods quietly*

Me: "You know that's okay, right, honey? You can like boys or girls, or both. Whatever--or whoever--you choose, your Dad and I will always support you."

Max: *leans forward and hugs me from behind* (We were stopped at an intersection.)
