Mary Alice

Your house is your larger body.
-Kahlil Gibran

Dear readers, today I am sad for my sister, Mary Alice, who is not only paying more in rent than many of us can imagine, but also getting much less attention than any landlord I have ever experienced. And I have experienced quite a few in my lifetime. And the shameful part of it all is that her landlord is the US military. Our country.

Hers is a story best told in her own words. It saddens me to no end that those who take care of us, are so little taken care of themselves. Please leave your comments for my post on my sister's blog, she needs your support. And, if you feel moved, feel free to link to her blog via yours. More people should be aware of the reality military families have to deal with every day.
