Your Letters

Time now to turn the mike over to you and read from your letters and emails. Emily Friedman's recent story about 99-year-old piano prodigy Ruth Antine prompted this note from Julie. "Ruth Antine was a friend of my husband's grandmother, Rose Rosenblad (sp?) In New York City years ago. Rose died in 1994, but I was at her apartment several times when Ruth would come to play for her. I sent the link to your story to my husband's whole family and everyone is delighted that she is still alive and still playing."

Melody wrote to us after hearing Jessica Gould's story about D.C. resident Molly Kinder and her Face Your Fears February Campaign. Melody writes, "I loved your segment on fear. I've done my own version of face your fears February for years. I even call it that. I especially like to do activities on Fridays in February for alliteration purposes. Like Ms. Kinder, I have traveled and lived in dangerous regions, but I still feel that there are a lot of fears I'd like to address. Finishing my thesis, finding a job I enjoy, overcoming the fear of ending up alone, et cetera. Although every year I decide to leave my arachnophobia for next time."

You also can sign up for our podcasts on iTunes. We hope you'll join us next week when we'll explore a topic near and dear to our hearts here in Washington, stress. We'll find out whether D.C. really is as jittery as its reputation suggests and we'll meet the guys who figure out just how much stress we're putting on local roads and bridges. Plus, riding your way through anxiety. Local veterans take up pen and paper to cope with their memories of the battlefront.

Veterans have a really hard time coming back and they want to write to have their families, their friends understand why they're acting the way they do.
