Ladies and gentlemen,
I know I spoke my rather long and wordy piece earlier, but in have one more thing to share with the family, based on new information this evening.
You see, I just got off the phone with Mark this evening, and I have more information than I ever wished I had about this. They are struggling with several aspects of life, some of them truly life-threatening, and all of them very overwhelming in a number of ways. The things they truly need we can't provide, like a sure future, time to heal and prepare for the next round of challenges, things like that. But hearing him talk tonight made me realize just how good I have it and how fortunate we are to be close to friends and have certain amenities available to us that we take for granted sometimes, and the money we raise *can* help with some of those things.
I wish I could do more. Thank you to each and every one of you who have given of yourselves and your own mod money to help a Sling family in need. I truly think we can, together, make the difference.
So.....do with that what you will. I just thought some folks would want to know.
