It feels like it has been a very sad week and it is only Wednesday
. Yesterday, Tom Brokaw announced to the world that he has been diagnosed with bone marrow cancer and has just a three percent chance to live ten years. He has always been a great guy and he said in a statement that he is optimistic that he will be one of the three percent. I hope he is too. When you are diagnosed with a cancer that tough to beat do you fight it like crazy or if you just turned 74 do you go out and enjoy all the years you have left without trying to fight it? I think at 74 if you could give me ten years of no pain or very little pain I would probably just enjoy the ten years. I would hate to spend the last ten years fighting a fight I didn't ultimately win and have no energy to do anything or enjoy life.
