In Kyra's Own Words: Fisher House

This was the 6th annual Fisher House Golf Classic.

Just imagine being a member of the military and you go overseas to fight in a war, in shape and mentally prepared to fight and serve your country.

Then your entire career comes to a halt because the enemy took part of your body…and many times that impacts the head and heart of our men and women in uniform as well.

They need their family and they need them by their side when they are trying to recover. Fisher House provides that.

There are 43 Fisher houses right now in the United States providing a free home for families who want to be by the side of their loved one as they go through therapy, surgery and recovery from war.

I am so glad we support this organization and I hope you will too. For more information go to the Fisher House website.

    It is a shame we can't trust our government. Sen. Spector's move is one more example of self-interest that further erodes the representation of those who elected him in the first place. The democrats deserve him. Eventually he will show his true colors and betray them as well. As Obama says, we need to get involved in our government – I'll bring the broom so we can clean house.

    I would like to know why Don Lemon didn't mention the contribution that Denzel Washington made to Fisher House when he interviewed Mr Fisher on Sunday's show??? And why didn't Mr Fisher mention it also??? If you like I can forward the e-mail and pictures to Cnn??
