Just don't have time.

Good morning! Well, I am sad to report that my computer is still on the fritz. I am using it in "safe mode" but to be honest there is nothing that feels safe about it. After fighting with it for a couple of days I have decided that I am left no option but to wipe it and start from scratch. At the very least, I am disappointed with Vista. The good news is that things around the Dungan household seem to be going extremely well. It is amazing what the threat of a lump of coal in your stocking from Santa can do to the overall demeanor of kiddos. I love this time of year. Christmas is good!

This is, however, a chaotic time of year. With two ongoing events for Lunch for Life and a benefit concert I have found myself running from one place to another. Don't get me wrong, I love the busyness. I just hope that we are as successful as we need to be given the state of the economy. I have seen an abrupt halt to corporate support. From a business perspective, I can't say that I blame them. However, from the perspective of trying to save kids lives it leaves me feeling that much more desperate. I have very real fears about funding research this year. To be honest, from what I see, there will be significantly less research funding this coming year than the last. If things don't improve drastically there will be fewer kids on trial and fewer options for kids. To me, that is the saddest reality of this economic meltdown. Given some time the economy will recover, banks will recover, automakers will recover and everything will go on as normal. Unfortunately, the kids have no time to recover.

They need help now and they need it more than ever.

Unfortunately, the future of purpose is in question.
