    They say God never gives you more than you can handle, but this family sure has gone through many tragedies.
    Grandma Ethel is 91 now and had a few tender words yesterday.

    No family deserves this kind of continued tragedy!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    The problem is that the Kennedys do not consider themselves subject to the laws of physics.

    Another sad case of a 'poor little rich girl' who, surrounded by the trappings of wealth and privilege, still felt depressed and cut her life short at age 22 with a drug overdose.

    Any loss of life like this at 22 is a tragedy but millions of Americans born without the advantages of family wealth and fame manage to overcome poverty, dysfunctional family or depression and fight for a productive, fulfilling life. Not all make it of course but many do - and they receive little or no notice.

    That doesn't necessarily diminish the tragedy of this young woman's untimely death by drug overdose but it should help put it in perspective.

    This really is a sad, sad, story.

    But, just another one to remind us that Wealth and Power....well, they ain't all they are cracked up to be, even if we do still strive for them.

    (RFK and Ethel were my favorites of the Kennedy clan. He was the most "serious," and seemed far more grounded than his brothers.)

    Yes. It is pronounced SEER-shuh. It means freedom, or liberty. Irish Gaelic is never pronounced the way it is spelled. I cannot imagine trying to learn the language. The only Irish name that is pronounced the way it is spelled, to my knowledge anyway, is "Keeley", my granddaughter's name. It means beautiful.
