My thoughts and prayers go out to the missing soldiers families.
This Memorial Day weekend, I hope we as Americans, can remember it's not a holiday just for store sales and picnics. It's a day to remember our fallen soldiers. I thank our troops for their service, their families for their sacrifice and remain mindful that no words I could ever use would express my Thanks good enough. However small Thank you seems, I mean it with all my heart. May this Memorial Day be peaceful and safe for you all. Take Care

Hey 360 group~
It is fantastic that Sir Richard Branson is bringing attention to global warming.
This is serious!
I was shocked at the Planet In Peril series last night with Jeff Corwin. Greenland is menlting! This could be catastrophic!
I think there should be a blog about this. Jeff, are you reading this? Start typing!
The more awareness that can be created, the better chance we have for survival of the planet.
Iran is freaking me out with their atomic work. It is even scarier to think how President Bush might react to this!
That is all I can freak out about at the moment and keep my sanity. Off to yoga~

I'm really interested to see the segment about the Nunavut expedition. Children from Iqaluit tell me you have to watch for polar bears at recess! That's different from the usual stories I hear about bullies on the recess yard. Their descriptions of Iqaluit have peeked my interest. This morning on the news, there was a follow-up to the story about a huge piece of Ellesmere Island breaking off about 2 years ago. They were comparing it to an ice chunk the size of lower Manhattan, and a group will be trying to put a tracking device on it. That's some iceberg! Apparently, it's getting moved around by currents and they're not sure exactly where it's headed. Last I'd heard they thought it might head toward the Bering Sea. It's nice to see a bit about Canada on AC360.

I am so both excited and yet sadden that Canada has made it into the Planet in Peril series because the polar ice caps melting is an important issue when it comes to our environment. Can't wait to see more of Jeff's reports this week. Stay safe Jeff and team!!!!

Anderson:

I know your speaking in your native tongue is always perfect :P but just a heads on this, it's pronounced noon-a-vut with a short u. Please don't attempt to pronounce any of the other locations. :P

It's high time our dogsleds and igloos are getting some attention around here. :P You'll get to see that even the Inuit live in real houses.

Thanks for teaching the typical American something about the world around them instead of letting them wallow in their ignorance.

I'm glad that you are talking about the territory just above our heads in Quebec,Nunavut. Most of the Inuits also see their houses flooded and mudslides. They have to go more into the land. You can't do Planet in Peril without talking about Canada.Here,in Quebec,the boreal forest and other provinces also,Nunavut,every places in the north,really,in Alberta, the bituminus sands transformed in gaz for you guys only(around a million gallons per day)it is the more polluting way to make petrol. We have a responsability that we were willing to take(the citizens still do) but our Prime Minister is doing everything he can to back out of Kyoto. The U.S. and Canada(at least,our leaders) need to stand up and make the right decisions. It is a shame they are not doing it.
Stay on it,Anderson and crew.

I have been uneasy listening to the media the past couple of days concerning the discovery of soldier's body in Iraq. As a mother of a soldier who has recently finished a 16 mo. tour in Iraq my heart goes out to the family. Not only for their loss, but because of what they have had to endure due to the callous nature of the media's reporting on this tragic event. The details that they insist upon reporting on must have all the families involved with knots in their stomachs. I feel that way, and my sons home and safe! I for one want to hear the news to find out the outcome, but I wish that the media would take the families into consideration while reporting and wait until there are concrete facts rather than speculation. Give the families involved a little piece of mind rather than constant turmoil as this story unfolds. May God bless all our honorable soldiers and families this Memorial day.

It makes me ill to think what those missing soldiers have gone through or are still going through. God bless them and their families.

Anderson, keep doing the Planet in Peril series. I'm looking forward to tonight's story.

Your show about Africa was really informative. My pastor returned from a mission trip to Sierra Leone. She said the poverty is like nothing we see over here. Our church has been collecting school supplies to send to the children. Reminds me of when you said children come up and ask for a pencil.

I got out my old "Live Aid" tee shirt and wore it to work Friday. There is so much war and even more poverty in this world but we must keep on hoping and working for an end to both.

For all those who have lost loved ones on foreign soil, for those who have lost loved ones in their native land: Thank you so much for your loved one, the sacrifice they made for me and my loved ones. My heart cries for you.

Gratefully,

Maggie
