Pres. Obama w/longtime colleague and friend (Video, Elizabeth Warren announcement)
I think what so many missed who wanted to "make something" of "would Obama or wouldn't he," regarding Elizabeth Warren, is that the President has deep respect and regard for Elizabeth Warren, given that she is not a stranger to him - they are longtime friends. Look at his expression in the photo -- this man who early on understood that it is possible for one individual to make a positive difference in the lives of others, who grew up with a mom who was single for most of her life, and grew up with grandparents who endured their own quiet struggles, and this fighting woman who is the daughter of a janitor -- they remain champions of the middle class and the most vulnerable amongst us -- because they have lived the struggle and have never forgotten. (Click image for CSPAN video)

:kick:

Congratulations, Elizabeth Warren! Thank you for always fighting the good fight! We know you'll do us proud.

9. It makes my day to hear such support from my dear friends
Today Mom is a bit better.

Alzeheimer's is so heartbreaking to watch.

Your Love One is a Different Person and you keep trying to find the Mom that loved you so much for all these years.

Today I see my precious Mother.
Last night she was screaming at me and telling me to put her in a Nursing Home!
