  • Tragic events 50 years ago leave mark on state, nation

    On Friday, our country will mark the 50th anniversary of one of its most tragic events: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

    Like the attack on Pearl Harbor before it and 9/11 after it, Nov. 22, 1963, is one of a handful of dates in history where those old enough to remember it will never forget where they were and what they were doing.

  • Jesus is similiar to Kermit the Frog opening his arms to everyone in the sandbox

    A few weeks ago I met with a friend who’s a play therapist. She works with troubled, abused and damaged children, letting them play while she observes and does some other stuff — therapist stuff — that helps them express and process their thoughts and feelings.

    There’s a lot more to it, but that’s my reduced-to-bare-bones version of what she does.
