Dear Susan, I feel honored that you looked at my blog, "The American Eldercide." It is obvious that you are a woman of passion and committment. I guess one might say that about me, as well, but I do not possess your knowledge! Thanks, again. Please email me (I don't want to let your mind get away!)
