    Wow, Dan, the impact of not having friends to go to on bad days is a wake up call. I’m making plans for the Eagles Club and being a part of a community.
    Over 7 years ago your book and story changed me. I’ll never fit in the 9-5 job scenario and don’t shed a tear over it.
    Now to plug in with the Eagles.

    • Cindy,
      Yeah that’s a pretty startling statistic for sure. I’ll look forward to welcoming you into the Eagles community!
