Many questions came out of the Sandy Hook school shootings and the loss of very young children in that 2012 disaster.
One big question is how to help individuals with Severe Mental Disorders, while preventing them from harming themselves and others.
Being just six years old and leaving for school one morning, only to be shot before noon in the first grade is hideous. We must keep this from recurring in America. What can we all do to help?
Upon hearing the words that Representative [D-Arizona] Gabrielle Giffords had been shot in the head, I flashed back to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, another official shot in the head. I’ll remember both days.
In a dramatic miracle, Giffords came out of a medically induced coma by herself Wednesday January 12, 2011. Her friends, coworkers, and family talked her up out of the coma. See running live feed of updates at the link below.

Religious Implications of “Tron Legacy”.
Tron Legacy addresses the nature and creation of life and considers: by what or by whom can life be created? Science fiction and fantasy literature and film have considered these questions since the 19th Century at least and may never be satisfied with the answers available to date. Tron Legacy raises more questions about these concepts at the end of its film than do many others in 2010. While some viewers and critics see Legacy as much-awaited entertainment and others think it fails to live up to expections, I see parallels with the possible future of Humankind very close to the surface of this work. They are startling.
Having believed since the Internet became popular that like patterns present themselves incyberspace, Earthly life, and outer space via fractal equations, Tron Legacy raised the hair on the back of my neck. it is not just an entertaining film with a return of Jeff Bridges. It could be prophetic.

Regardless of whether anyone finds and proves Noah’s Ark exists, the American South will have an Ark in Kentucky by 2014. Construction began in 2010 40 miles south of Cincinnati OH off I-75 in Grant County, Kentucky.
The exhibit is a living history museum under subsidiary ownership of Answers In Genesis, which operates the Creation Museum in the area. The construction is all-wood and sustainable, provided by Troyer Group and their LEED certified professionals. It will provide jobs for 900 individuals and boost the area economy.
Meanwhile, religious argument wage on about Noah’s Ark, the Red Sea, and the Ark of the Covenant. SEE —
Communist China is reportedly still prescribing the musical works and productions that its peoples may enjoy, all else being unacceptable. It was similar in Old Russia before the October Revolution and in the USSR until the 1960s – but even into the 1980s in some aspects, before the Berlin Wall came down. Happily for the West, we welcomed their “rejects.”
Composers and musicians fled to Western Eruope and then to the USA – right into the arms of the McCarthy Committee and its witch hunts — But in LA and West Hollywood, Igor Stravinsky and George Balanchine shone with talent and collaboration between themselves and among others of their artistic talents.
One of the grand results was
Athletics and coaching can lead to a lifetime career that is lucrative and morally rewarding. Such is the case for Mr. Lee Evans. Famous for breaking two World Records in 400 m and 4 x 400 m relay, he is also famous for his part in the Black Power Movement, his work to help eliminate HIV/AIDS as well as the misinformation distributed about the conditions, and for training Nigerian Olympic runners.
All this from running!
Graham Sclater’s scintillating new book Hatred Is the Key tells the aftermath of little-publicized War where 10,000+ Americans were held in a cold stone prison in England for years, even for 4 months AFTER the war was declared finished. They were tortured.
US Navy men, boys, merchants, slaves and ex-slaves were all tortured, some 13-year-old boys dying immediately in the winter cold without food and overrun by bugs and disease.
The Englishmen in charge suffered their own consequences in the War of 1812 and no one won any land in America or Canada. American Indians on Britain’s side lost the land promised to them and slaves killed in prison were finally free.
This book could be the basis of award-winning essays and reports in Americans schools and may become the basis for a fine film in the future.
