Putting the walk together is difficult every year. It always brings up emotions I don't want to deal with.

When people mention acts of terrorism and things like that I think I have a bigger fear than most. My fear isn't for me, but for Riley. I always think about his insulin supply and what would happen if that was cut off. It terrifies me.

No, it never gets any easier.

Penny, that was heartwrenching. It must have been difficult to put together.

We are having a difficult time again. My parents just came back from New Orleans and were talking to the kids about the destruction they saw from Hurricane Katrina, and told them how people survived on their rooftops for days at a time. My older daughter was very quiet, and asked what would happen to Sam in a situation like that. I told her she knew what would happen. It has hit her pretty hard.

This never gets any easier.
