Remembering 9/11

A Decade of Hope

A flatbed truck escorted debris from the World Trade Center into Denver today. Donated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the remnants will be used to create memorials to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of September 11, 2001.

Denver's memorial will be one of thousands located in all fifty states and in seven different countries. Many books have been written to pay tribute to those that lost their lives that day, the heroes who responded, and those that miraculously survived.

Children and AIDS

The 24th Annual AIDS Walk Colorado is taking place August 13, 2011.  Who will you walk for?

 

Parents all over the world have lost children of all ages to AIDS.  Generations of families have been destroyed in Africa due to this disease.  Newspapers report the statistics but children and those who care for them, are the most articulate about the impact of AIDS on their lives.

Nasdijj says it best when asked why anyone would adopt a child with AIDS in his memoir The Boy and the Dog are Sleeping: "Because one comes to you.  Because you can."

Mucho Mojo author event opens the Denver RomCon!

I never think I may have lost my mojo until someone brings up the idea of mojo (that magic spell or essence  that makes people attractive to each other). Once the subject comes up, I feel my posittraction levels start to plummet. But what can be had and lost can also be recaptured.

School Lunch Scramble

Top 100 Recipes for a Healthy Lunchbox

As a teenager, I went to a private school which did not provide hot meals most days.

I remember the regular scramble to pack 5 sack lunches – 4 for children (me and my siblings) and 1 for my mother.  If you find yourself in the same situation, hopefully one of the books below will slightly ease the school lunch scramble.
