What Big Cat Are You?

gacked from ariestess

You Are a Lynx
You are a quiet observer of the world around you. Your wisdom comes from listening carefully.
You've always been extra sensitive and aware. And it's made it difficult for you to fit in.

You see past people's outward personas. You are able to penetrate a stranger's soul.
What you've learned about people is both beautiful and ugly. And you keep these secrets to yourself.


I found this to be strangely accurate...
The following story is an excerpt from the book, Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace: Living in the Spirit of the Prayer of St. Francis, by Kent Nerburn.

I found it to be a very lovely story and wanted to share - I hope you will do the same with it.

This is perfect!

What's your inner spirit?

Wolf
Wolf
You are faithful and cautious. You tend to run with a group of others and like to have others around you. You are brave and also gentle.
How do you compare?

Is Anybody Listening?

I know I rarely post in my journal, and I hope to remedy that one day... As a matter of fact I have a request for anyone on my flist who might read this.

I've signed up to write for oldschoolfic ficathons for fandoms that are no longer current. I signed up to write in the following fandoms:


  • Babylon 5

  • Star Trek Voyager

  • Stargate SG1

  • Mutant X

  • X-files

  • Xena


Apparently no one wants a story from any of these fandoms, so I need your help. Please go to oldschoolfic and request something in the above fandoms. I know you guys will help me out, right? Oh, and pass the word, sign up yourself even...

Thanks!!!

Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act

Something important for you to consider.

From a nurse:

I'll never forget the look in my patients eyes when I had to tell them they had to go home with the drains, new exercises and no breast. I remember begging the Doctors to keep these women in the hospital longer, only to hear that they would, but their hands were tied by the insurance companies.
So there I sat with my patients, giving them the instructions they needed to take care of themselves, knowing full well they didn't grasp half of what I was saying, because the glazed, hopeless, frightened look spoke louder than the quiet 'Thank You' they muttered.

A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to remove cancerous breast cells/tissue. If you know anyone who has had a Mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards.

Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure.
Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it on to others.
You know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require Insurance Companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the 'drive-through mastectomy' where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their Web page with a petition drive to show your support. Last year over half the House signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the Web site below.
