What's your favorite childhood memory? Is it piling into the family van for a trip to the Jersey shore? The chaos of Thanksgiving dinner at your grandmother's house? Maybe it's something as ordinary as the gentle way your mom would wake you up for school or how your dad would toss you onto his shoulders when you were little. I'd bet that a felt sense of "home" anchors a lot of our childhood memories, and in reflection, many of us might find it difficult to choose just one favorite memory from childhood. Some of us, however, might struggle to come up with a single memory at all.

Shout out...that’s this issues theme. Tell someone they are loved, thank them, they made a difference; ok I can do that, and well hopefully, in that there’s a lesson. I’ll give a loud and clear shout out to two sets of parents: mine and my roommates from college. Mine, alive and well, and living in southern Delaware happily married for nearly 50 years. My roommate’s parents we unfortunately and untimely lost tragically on New Year’s Eve 2016 in a heartbreaking accident. Perhaps it is that timeliness that surfaces my real acknowledgement of their special qualities.
