We're a Nation of Laws

Torture is illegal. Period. End of debate. There is no legal, moral or probable justification for torture. It's against the Bill of Rights; it's against the Geneva Convention; it's against United Nations Convention Against Torture (ratified by the U.S. in 1994); it's against every state statute from every modern constitutional democracy and every decent and encouraging proposal coming from humanity in the last century.

The year we gave up Christmas to give back

It was summer when Mom had first mentioned the idea of our going as a family to Disney World. We were ecstatic. Because we were a family of 12, trips that necessitated hotels and plane rides were extremely rare. This would be a first for many of us. Before we got too excited, Mom explained to us that the only way this trip would be possible was if each of us worked hard and saved up money to pay some of our own way. We weren't worried about that, though.

Cutting the Christmas crazy

Christmas is crazy. There is no getting around it. Recitals and school programs dominate our calendars. Cookie swaps and get-togethers fill our evenings. Then there's shopping and wrapping and trying to squeeze every last sugar-coated ounce of fun out of the Christmas season, because if we don't, then our children won't have blissful memories of mischievous elves on shelves or the warm glow of Christmas in their hearts to get them through the cold winter ahead.
