When a serious medical diagnosis has been made or an unexpected accident occurs, people often have to make critical health decisions for themselves or family. "Leaving a Legacy of Love" is a free, five-part series led by two retired hospice nurses, taking place at the #BelmontBranch of the Dayton Metro Library, 6-8pm Thursdays in June. http://daytonmetrolibrary.org/news/… The librarian sits at her computer, fingers resting on the keyboard. She starts to type, then pauses. If only she could come up with a perfect line to introduce this video... 4 minutes of writer's block in movies. http://bit.ly/1TlO8Fe
