~ Senator Clintons Universal Health Care Plan Can Help ALL


My Daughter Is my Pride and Joy! She helps me to look through her eyes when she needs me for those experienced talks. She shares her pain when she needs my inner strength. She voices her life's goal when she needs me to listen with my heart. My daughter's life is to grow forward, ahead of me, but within reach of a hug. And one day when I'm very, very old, she'll help me get lost in wonderful memories that only a Mother and Daughter can share. by awakening

"The hours were brutal. Whiteside ate one meal a day, slept in two four-hour shifts and worked seven days a week. Her superiors credited her with her unit's success. "She has produced outstanding results in one of the most demanding and challenging Combat Zones," her commander, Lt. Col. Darlene McCurdy, wrote in her evaluation."

"One soldier Whiteside befriended was a 20-year-old private named Sammantha Owen-Ewing. Intelligent and funny, Owen-Ewing was training to be a nurse when she suffered mental problems and was admitted to Ward 54. She was still receiving psychiatric care at Walter Reed when the Army abruptly discharged her. According to her husband, she was dropped off at a nearby hotel with a plane ticket."

"On Friday, Whiteside and her father flew to Utah for the funeral. Yesterday, after a service at a small Mormon church, Sammantha Owen-Ewing was buried."
