From Dorie - As the
mother of a son with Paranoid Schizophrenia I have been struggling with the
issue of prayer for quite some time. It is not that I have lost faith. I
have been running on it for five years now. Granted there were times when it
was reduced to the size of a mustard seed. But as I look back in hindsight,
there was a moment that stands out from all the rest that left me totally
and completely drained and frozen in fear like a deer in the headlights of
an oncoming car when it came to the issue of prayer.

schizophrenia, new research shows.
A Beautiful Note - Tom Harrell, named jazz
trumpeter of the year three times by Downbeat
Magazine, is known for the gorgeous, intricate
melodies he composes. Seeing Harrell play, it's
impossible to believe that he suffers from paranoid
schizophrenia - a mental illness so profound that it institutionalizes
many of its victims.
