Dave Grossman built his  career on attempting to help soldiers, and citizens, to heal after mass shootings or war, and attempt to resume a “normal” life.

Some branches, cut limbs. We toss in pine cones with lots of future yet to be released and planted. New forest re-seed themselves after the fire rages through…See More

https://goo.gl/ELNGfj

Long before I ever heard of the "Shepherds' Christmas Plays", I knew that there were two "streams" of people in life -- The Kings and The Shepherds. 

I was as Shepherd.

This is a little O. Henry-esque tale about the time, just out of college, when I was selling carpet.

This is for anyone who works during the…
