The most frustrating part of this job is being unable to do something for a troubled soul who has a problem and cries out to a newspaper for help. The harsh fact of life is that there are some problems for which there are no easy solutions. And the most we can do is offer comforting words.And I felt this frustration in reading a poignant letter sent to me by Susan Waitkus, of Chicago's Morgan Park neighborhood.I hope I don't ruin your day with this tale of woe. But her story should be shared because it could happen to others.

FUNNY THING, in the Revolutionary War the two opposing chieftains were Farmer George and George the Farmer. George the former was also a Hanoverian, an invalid, a king. George from Mount Vernon was also a fourth-generation American, surveyor, soldier, state legislator, letter writer and first U.S. president.George III is not our topic -- his birthday's in June. The pride of the Washingtons is about to have a bicentennial year, climaxing in December with the anniversary of his death. Official Maryland can be relied on for noises.

"Happy birthday Terrrrr-rance -- Happy birthday to you."Terrance Perry, slumped over the hood of a police car with his hands cuffed behind his back, was not enjoying his party. Not at 6 a.m. Not while standing out on the street in his stocking feet in the 2300 block of Druid Hill Avenue as passing motorists gawked at him. Not even after Baltimore County Police Detective Robert J. Castagnetti began to sing him a special birthday greeting.Perry -- who was wanted for assault with the intent to murder -- had just been pulled roughly from his hiding place beneath a sofa in the living room of an apartment in a two-story row house where he had been staying.

Just after dusk yesterday, Shawn Tiller's mother arrived at an East Baltimore street corner with bundles of colorful balloons and teddy bears for her boy. Friends embraced her and passed out candles. In hushed tones, they asked if it would be appropriate to sing "Happy Birthday." Tiller would have turned 17 yesterday. Instead of celebrating, his parents and about 50 of his friends stood on the cracked pavement where he was gunned down over the weekend for a candlelight vigil. They tied the balloons and toys to a signpost.

My sweet baby boy Aaron turned 1 on Saturday. I still can't quite wrap my head around how fast this year has gone by. I knew it would be fleeting. This isn't my first rodeo, after all, and I'm stunned every day by just how grown-up my 4 1/2-year-old is. And with Aaron being born before my husband returned from his deployment to Afghanistan, I knew that first few weeks would fly. But knowing that, and knowing that we're a two-and-through family and that I wouldn't be doing this again, made me think that if I held on a little tighter to every moment, maybe time would slow down.
