I have officially lost faith in humanity and this universe as a whole.
Last Thursday evening (Oct. 22) about 7:20 while at Fred Meyer, my back window got smashed and someone broke in my car and stole my flight bag. Everything in there is literally nothing he can use.

A journal that my friend Amber gave me the day of my brother’s funeral.
In their quest to keep busy in the community by serving, the Bear Mountain Leos have decided on a monthly project of providing monthly meals to those at the Fisher House.
The first meal was wild rice/chicken soup with salad. The second entailed various breakfast items. The Bear Mountain Leos are the youth of lionism from ages from 13-18. They meet each week at the Boys and Girls Clubs and plan their community activities.
