Todd Bryant arrived at Palm Crest Elementary School in the late 1980s. He came equipped with one golf club, with which he convinced his friends, boys who did not own their own set, to join him in the game of golf. The course, of course, was Verdugo Hills. A foursome of 10-year-old kids shared that one golf club, I think it was a putter, to compete and complete the nine-hole course. There’s new book about Todd Bryant. Or mostly about Todd. The book is “In a Time of War” by Bill Murphy, Jr. It will be published in September, just in time for new school year.

In April 2001, Cadet Todd Jason Bryant took visiting La Cañada Flintridge residents on a tour of his beloved West Point Military Academy. He walked with them along the bluffs overlooking the Hudson River, by the Visitor Center, past stately buildings, chapels and classrooms etched with the history of time, going back to its founding by George Washington and his Revolutionary Army two centuries ago. During this tour, he spoke reverently of...

Few Americans can forget the significance of today’s date, September 11. As former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said of the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the Sept. 11, 2001 al-Qaeda attacks — when terrorist hijacked airliners crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the U.S. Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania — was “a date which will live in infamy.” About 3,000 Americans died in the Sept. 11 attacks. A burst of patriotism was evidenced later that day as Congressional Democrats and Republicans stood as one on the steps of the Capitol to sing “God Bless America.

On Monday, Congressman Ken Calvert (R-Corona) introduced H.R. 988, a bill that would name a Riverside post office the Lieutenant Todd Jason Bryant Post Office. Bryant, a product of the La Cañada public school system, was killed a little more than three years ago while on active duty in Iraq. His family lives in Riverside. "It is an honor to introduce this bill in memory of Lieutenant Todd Bryant," stated Rep. Calvert. "Todd was one of those rare individuals who distinguished himself at every stage of life.

The grieving mother wore an American flag, a golden angel and a Navy SEAL Trident on her lapel. Her son, Lt. Michael Murphy, had just been posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism in Afghanistan. Trying to contemplate how one consoles a grieving mother, I stumble for words. How do we mitigate the sorrow of a mother whose son has died in war? There is a hole in the heart of a beleaguered nation because this scene is much too prevalent. As President Bush presented the medal, he held Mrs. Murphy’s hand.

St. Petersburg Times columnist Jan Glidewell once said, “You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.” On my nightstand sits a self-help book on improving one’s memory. Left to my own devices, I am awash in memories, so why do I need a book to help me remember your last name or where I put my keys? The answer is this: It is all about living in the world. Such are my thoughts as we approach La Cañada High School’s eighth annual scholarship awards ceremony for 1st Lt. Todd Bryant.

Last Thursday was a great day. In the morning, the Valley Sun was distributed. My friends at the La Cañada Thursday Club immediately read my column and learned that I borrow my daughter's makeup. They quickly arranged for a beauty "make over." Kim from Merle Norman had also read the column. She arrived at the Thursday Club with two satchels of makeup and her sister, Kris. They suggested that I discontinue products such as "Lip Venom" and "Hard Candy," because these products dry out elderly lips.

Not everyone has angels. Those who do have paid the price. They pay the price of loss. They pay the price of pain. They pay the price of bereavement. I write this on May 1, 2011. Tonight, Osama bin Laden is dead. The celebration can be somber, or not. There are jokes about Donald Trump. (“He won’t believe Osama bin Laden is dead until he sees the death certificate.”) There are jokes about President Obama. There are jokes about bin Laden. There are phone calls and tweets, posts and emails.
