Feel :: Thanks Lieutenant Dan

Gary Sinise, who played Lt. Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump, has dedicated his life to giving back to veterans and their families.

A recent thank-you video from celebrities and veterans brought the actor to tears.

Sinise has spent the last four decades supporting active duty service men and women, veterans, first responders, their families and caregivers, and those in need.

His foundation, Gary Sinise Foundation, raises $30 million a year for veterans.

Music :: "Voicemail for Jill" by Amanda Palmer

Amanda Palmer has a new album out March 8 titled “There Will Be No Intermission”. She just released the 2nd pre-release for the record “Voicemail for Jill”. Here’s what she has to say about the new song:

i have been trying for decades to write a song about abortion that actually does justice to the experience. it took this long....but i did it. i’m more proud of this song than almost anything i’ve ever penned. but...if the response on social media just in the past few hours means anything...i think the world is more ready than usual to hear these kinds of stories.

it’s not an easy listen. i suggest listening in a quiet place.
