Throughout the history of mankind, admirable deeds and tragic sacrifices have been made in the name of patriotism. We know there’s a reason why Russians call their country Mother Russia, why the 4th of July is a national holiday in the United States, and why Inter Milan and AS Roma soccer fans forget their differences for ninety minutes every time Italy is playing. For some, patriotism is a very clearly defined concept, and is symbolized by a uniform. For others, it’s more than that, and the definition stretches beyond just defending your land. But we all know homesickness when we feel it, and that sense of home, of belonging, is at the root of all patriotism, and the desire to defend what we hold close to our hearts.
In spite of my best attempts to eat, smoke and otherwise put myself six feet under, I find myself still alive and well, even though, as the song goes, “Every now and then, you know it’s kind of hard to tell.”
To keep it short, back on Labor Day of last year I found myself with a bad case of pneumonia. I ended up passing out, and on the ambulance ride to the hospital, my heart stopped (Again? This is getting very old). Fortunately, the Docs managed to get it going again, but I was out for long enough to cause some brain damage.

Teachers are supposed to help your children grow and develop their learning skills and hone in on their talents and social skills. Not 61-year-old Third grade teacher Mark Berndt. His thirty-year experience at Miramonte Elementary School gave new meaning the word experience.
When I sent my only child to kindergarten on what was going to be the glorious first day, I followed the bus all the way to the school and my child said “Mom, geez did you have to go all the way to school? My friends from pre-school were yelling, ‘Hey! Isn’t that your mom?’”

In this day and age it seems as though more times than none when we pick up a newspaper or turn on the nightly news that we hear of children being beaten/tortured/raped/murdered by parents,loved ones, or babysitters. It’s really heart breaking. So let me ask you, as a parent, what would you do if you found someone had hurt your child? Would you call the police or take matters into your own hands? What if you had already called the police previously and they did nothing but write their standard police report?
How well do any of us really know our friends? I’m sure most of us would like to think we know them very well especially if they’ve been around your family for years. Let me start my telling all of you that this is a gut wrenching story and it’s very close to my heart because it happened only about 15 miles from my home. I have gotten to know the victim’s family and they are very good people that should not be going through something like this.
Amanda Taylor, 32, from Leighton Alabama was a beautiful, outgoing,loving mother to three children. She was a wonderful daughter/sister/aunt/cousin/and friend to many great people.

Good morning, and welcome back to pysih.com!
There’s been a brief hiatus while we sort through things and help Max and Admin get back into the swing of things.
To that end, Cleo and I, and I’m hoping a few others are going to jump in and become contributors.
We hope we’ll be able to pick back up where we left off and get some of the old and new readers and writers activated and involved.
To that end, if you’re interested, post a quick comment, leave your actual email address in the hidden field of your comment and we’ll open up communications.
That all aside, Cleo has a baker’s dozen of stories we’ll be working through over the next few weeks and I have a couple, any requests?
Ever since People You’ll See In Hell made it’s now infamous appearance in the HBO documentary, “There’s Something Wrong With Aunt Diane!”, the number of visits to the site, and the number of comments made to the five articles where Diane Schuler was the topic of discussion went through the roof.
Our server has handled the extra load like a champ, but the incredible number of comments has given our WordPress software fits. Nowhere was this more apparent than in ‘Diane Schuler: An Interesting Perspective’, written by our good friend Fuzzy Wuzzy. The total number of comment reached, and then exceeded, 700 by the third day after the HBO Documentary premiered – The most comments a story has ever received on our site, outpacing it’s nearest rival by at least 200 comments.

Time for another edition of “We Get Email” my friends, and this time I’m really quite excited. Because this time, you, the reader, will decide the final outcome, and how I will reply to her “request”.
Allow me to explain.
This afternoon I received an email from a person who calls herself Tawnya Clouston. Ms. Clouston is much different from the usual malcontent unhappy about something that was said in an article, or in the article as a whole. She is well spoken, polite, and – I swear I had to check three times to make sure I wasn’t seeing things – she never insulted the website, the author of the story or myself. That doesn’t mean she isn’t seriously misinformed about what we do here at PYSIH, among other things.
