Before we say goodbye today, let's turn the microphone over to you and read from your messages. Kavitha Cardoza's ongoing series "Beating the Odds," has elicited all sorts of feedback from listeners. Her story on Sharnika Glasby, the engineering student who's graduating after being shot in the leg really struck a chord with listener Lisa.

"I am an engineer and one of the few females in engineering when I went to college in the '80s," she writes. "I am so impressed with Sharnika Glasby's story." And listener Wendy chimed in as well, "I just loved Sharnika's story," she writes, "I was really moved by her strength and her determination. I'm a female engineer who is hearing impaired. I graduated from UMass in 1988 so I walked a lonely path in school too. I would love to shake her hand and reach out to offer her help and support."

We hope you can join us next week when we'll dish about dads with a show all about "Fatherhood." We'll meet a comedy writer turned blogger who's making a career out of his stay at home parenting antics. We'll spend a day with a dad who's still in high school and we'll tag along with a father who's taking his family on a sailing expedition around the world as we bring you the latest in our "Elcie Diaries" series.
