What is life all about?

If you are in the process of looking forward or backward in your life and wonder, "What am I doing here?" this is the place for you. I hope through sharing experiences with others in that lost place, we will all find hope, joy, and especially purpose in our life.

Loneliness statistics

a 1990 Gallop study indicated that about 36% of Americans are lonely. That is more than 1 in 3. These people are our families, friends, coworkers and ourselves. Next time you are in line at the grocery store, take a look at those around you. Out of the three in line in front of you, one is lonely.

Look at your neighbors, you know--the ones next door on both sides and behind you. Someone there is lonely.

Now look in your own home--family--who is lonely? Is it your partner, your child, or you?

Loneliness is an epidemic.
