    Off Topic---- An appeal for help for you fellow man...

    I'm not sure if most here have heard (recently) about the tornadoes which hit the middle part of the country, their devastation and the loss of life related to it.

    Perhaps you may also have heard of it and of Angel Babcock (15 months old) whos family was visiting Indiana when the storms struck the town where her Grandparents lived. She and here entire family were killed (Angel, the youngest, was found alive and survived for a day longer). Now the grief stricken Grandparents are left to bury the family of 5 on the little or nothing which they have. The young family had no insurance.

    Other family members had started a family fund through Bank of America in Michigan called The Babcock Family Fund; they are hoping for donations for help defray the tremendous costs in burying 2 adults and 3 children.

    Donations can be taken at any branch of Bank of America nationwide. All that one needs to do is go in and ask about making a donation to The Babcock Family Fund in Michigan and make any small donation. It's that simple to recognize your fellow man who is not just devastated by the loss of their family, but facing burden in providing decent end-rites for their loved ones.

    I did it myself today, and I am in no way affiliated to their family (although I am astounded at their horrific loss and my heart and prayers go out to them). Nor do I live anywhere near Michigan or Indiana.

    I would urge anyone who could find it in themselves and recognizes the fragility of humanity here to help in any small way that they can.

    Thanks for reading this, if you took the time.
