Yesterday I finally made a visit to the cemetery where a friend of mine from high school is buried. Something I do every November, the month of All Souls: Malorie died in a car accident almost a year before my own accident in 1999. She was 15 years old.

Abortion funding still seems to be the main focus of pro-lifers now that the Senate has approved a motion to begin debate on health care reform last night.
