      You Can't Send A Duck To Eagle School
      Great Book. It is good to consider you are who you are, as well as others are who they are. We are each unique and are not all eagles. Know who you are looking for and why.

        You Cannot Send A Duck....
        The Samaritan Center in Austin, TX picks up the enormous slack our VA has here in Austin. We have the largest homeless population of veterans, suicide call rates are 450 per day, My son's VA mental doctor has 700 cases and no paper files and tells me he cannot put same on computer...they are overwhelmed and the Feds gave them a rebuke with litigation earlier this year. The Samaritan Center is saving our lives...they freely give real and compassionate counseling, biofeedback, Heroes Night Out, and acupuncture at lowest possible sliding scale. I choose to take whatever extra money I can scrape together to give not only the Veterans and Family members who come in but to uplift and empower the Center's Angels who serve as a mission...not a job. Angel hugs, Merry Haack

          Highly Recommended
          I found this to be one of the best books in the series with it's many examples and concepts of how to be a better person. The chapter on Questions to ask yourself is worth the price. Read it - you will like it and learn from it.
