Lisa Madras: So grateful for my two most precious gifts
What’s one thing could you not live without? I don't want to do it. I don't want to see anymore or hear anymore about the Sandy Hook shooting. I certainly don't want to write about it. But I can't NOT. It's Christmas Eve, and I should be writing about that.

If the average human lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? If this were the case, I'd have approximately 18 days before my impending expiration date.
