...several friends old and new reached out to me today to lend support, an ear, a shoulder, and even offered monies. Thank you all. And the best news is:
Someone found my wallet. I should be able to pick it up as soon as I arrange a meeting place with said savior.
But thanks to my parents, to the Central staff (who I've no doubt will not read this), and to my England (not all of them English) friends who supported me through the day during a huge time of trauma. And thank you to Amy and Sean for your online support!
Just remember the Killers: "Everything will be all right..."
