Silent lunchtime at Catholic school. (Not at my Catholic school, we were darn loud. And what's this "a choking child can't be heard" crap? Are that many people choking in this cafeteria? And are they blind children, that no one would notice them choking, they would have to hear it? Ridiculous.)
This story still gives me chills. A 37-year-old mom is diagnosed with ALS, and she and her husband must prepare their youngsters for life without her. In the end, she makes her son a promise: That she won't die of ALS for at least a year, and he holds it as his talisman, as you would. I hope she can live up to that promise, and even longer.
