    One of my favourite programs on tv is The Lens on CBC. Last night I
    watched a segment titled "Capturing A Short Life". An incredibly
    touching and poignant documentary which details the stories of
    families who are dealing, in an immediate sense, with the loss of a
    newborn baby. Capturing A Short Life portrays in a sensitive, intimate
    and cinematic manner, the emotional, medical and ethical choices that
    parents are often faced with when they are told that their baby is
    incompatible with life.

    The photography was done by a Toronto photographer Heather Rivlin.

    Viewing her work, I am forever changed. I found it incredibly
    inspiring and moving, as she seems to capture the essence of the
    subject and the emotion of the moment.

    yours! :eek:)

    You're right about "to those who.."

    As for my rebel-like writing. Chalk it up to hanging with Bret too
    much! LOL.

  6. Golly-darn! Next thing you'll be writing how you drove your "Hog"
    (Harley-Davidson) through Clampett whuppin' the locals, but in more
    colorful lingo.

    Happy Holidays to all.
