"I was tired, but it was a different kind of tired. This kind of tired comes from day after day of constant caregiving with no end in sight -- with no hope and no one to care. Respite allowed me to be with people who care and realize that some people understand what caregivers are going through."

Time and again, I am moved to emotion at the goodness of Americans particularly in instants of unexpected and horrific circumstances - natural disasters, terrorism, and life-shattering violence. It can be difficult knowing how to talk to our children about the loss and the fear surrounding events like 9/11, Hurricane Sandy, Newtown, the Boston Marathon, tornados in Oklahoma, among others.

A few months ago, Steven and Jessica Mooneyhan of Cassatt purchased the Hard Times Café from H.C. Robinson. H.C.'s customer base has ...
