Joseph: Be proud, you’ve earned it

My oldest son graduated from college six days ago and it has started me thinking about the emotional roller coaster ride I've been on this last month.

Scully: Loaves and fishes

"I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way."
