As a father, I appreciate the honor given by my children. Each year it is the custom across the length and breadth of our land, to honor mothers and fathers on "their day." Mothers are honored on "Mother's day," and fathers are honored on "Father's day." Do we appreciate that the basis for honoring our fathers and mothers stems from an ancient teaching which was...

  2. Carl E. McNair (1937–2004)

On April 20, two high school students with pipe-bombs and automatic weapons murdered twelve students and one teacher, and then killed themselves.
