“Susie” could have been anyone’s child. When she was lifted into the arms of her mother or father, she was probably looked upon with pride and even a sense of accomplishment as they held their promise in their arms.
A total of 327 boys and girls came through the doors of Alternative House last year. They came because their chances of success and safety were better at the Crisis Center’s runaway and homeless youth shelter than at their home.
On Nov. 22, we remembered the life but primarily the shocking death of President John F. Kennedy. People reminisced over where they were or how they heard. Everyone seemed to have some connection to the day the president was killed 50 years ago.
The last Thursday in November is an official day of gratitude. The need to give thanks as a nation goes back centuries.
America is a nation that has elevated individualism, the belief that all values, rights and duties focus on self-reliance and personal independence. Do we have a responsibility to the greater good? Does our right to act for our personal good carry responsibilities for the greater good? And h…
