    Happiness is infectious. That's why we want to share the pure joy of Noah, a boy with Down syndrome as he opens a letter of acceptance to college. Noah Van Vooren of Little Chute, Wisconsin now has a chance to attend Edgewood College and it seems he could not be happier. What is most incredible is that when Noah was born he was not expected to walk according to his doctors. Noah reads his own letter, despite an offer from his dad to read the letter. Watch the video and share the joy. Stay happy and those around you will...

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | 2-14-14 | Devin C. Foley
    One year ago today, Intellectual Takeout had one of its most illuminating Facebook posts and corresponding reactions. Ever. Being Valentine’s Day, we decided to share definitions of the “four loves” from C.S. Lewis’ book of the same name. The first love we shared was Affection, which is best exemplified in the love of parents for offspring and offspring for parents. It got lots of likes, though more from females. All in all, predictable. The second love we shared was Friendship. Here’s what we wrote in our Facebook post: And the second love? Friendship. “When either Affection or Eros is one’s...

    The Federalist ^ | December 30, 2013 | Bill McMorris
    Male friendship is formed around jokes, favors, and associations -- all things under attack. I got a telephone in my room right when “Boy Meets World” was getting big. I saw the characters chatting on the phone daily and mistook a studio cost-cutting device for how friends interacted. So I grabbed the school directory and called up my best friend at the moment, Sean. “Hi?” “Hey, it’s Billy” “Okay…” The call was over in seconds. We played full contact 500 on an asphalt driveway the next day with nary a mention of the awkward conversation. Like I said, my best...

    Our 21st century cultural landscape is littered with the casualties of the Sexual Revolution, even though if you’ve been listening exclusively to its propaganda arms, the media and academia, you’re probably thinking the whole experiment has gone swimmingly. The No-Man’s land of the resulting Gender Wars is littered with dozens of new sexually transmitted diseases, brains saturated with increasingly twisted pornography, broken marriages, and shattered futures—but as long as slimy sleaze-mongers like Dan Savage get to write columns on how to incur fleeting physical pleasure, we’re all "free."

    CBS ^ | February 14, 2013
    (CBS News) Just weeks after the 100th anniversary of President Richard Nixon's birth, a new exhibit at his presidential library is raising eyebrows. It contains newly declassified documents that reveal Nixon's correspondence with President Bill Clinton, and a surprisingly warm relationship between the two. The correspondence includes a personal, handwritten letter from Nixon congratulating Clinton on surviving a tough primary and general election to win the White House. That letter was the beginning of an unlikely union between the former Republican president and the newly elected Democratic chief executive.

    PALM BAY, Fla. — For most of Acacia Woodley's 10 years, she has noticed people staring at her and, at times, whispering about her. The sixth-grader at Palm Bay Elementary School has learned to stand up for herself. Born without a right hand and a deformed left one, she has embraced what she calls her "difference." It's part of what makes Acacia, Acacia. "Some people say they feel sorry for me. I tell them not to be," she said. "I don't care that I'm different. I like that I'm different." Moving from the Caribbean to South Carolina, then to Arizona,...

    LifeSiteNews ^ | June 14th, 2012 | Patrick B. Craine
    June 13, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When close friends are presented in film or literature today, the conclusion is often: ‘Oh, they are gay.’ One of the tragedies of our culture, in its vigorous acceptance of the homosexual agenda, is the corrosion of a true understanding of friendship. What is ‘Friendship’? Have we lost our concept of it? Today, Friendship is considered either mere casual companionship, or, if it is something deeper, a latent sexual urge. But traditionally, Friendship was neither of these things. In The Four Loves, novelist and philosopher C. S. Lewis describes Friendship as a love in its...

    SAN ANTONIO -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry remains one of the front-runners for the Republican Presidential Nomination, and depending on who you ask, many think he'll get it. John Sharp, the recently confirmed Chancellor of Texas A&M University who ran against Perry in the 1998 general election for Lieutenant Governor, gave his take on the race while visiting Texas A&M- San Antonio on Tuesday. "It's a full time deal running against Rick Perry, and anybody who sells him short is an idiot, because it will be a tough campaign," Sharp said. Sharp has known Perry since his college days, where...

Rick Perry, fresh off a Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley Wednesday night, campaigned in Newport Beach Thursday morning, with a rally at Roger’s Gardens. The emotional peak of the rally was OC Republican Party Chairman Emeritus Tom Fuentes, who is in the final stages of cancer, leaving his hospice bed to lead the invocation. After the rally, Perry went across the street to Fashion Island for a private fundraising event. Here are some photos from the Roger’s...

    Unprecedented accusation against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: a Muslim cleric accused the Iranian president of wanting "friendship with Israel," an Iranian website associated with the opposition reported on Thursday. According to religious scholar Mahmoud Nubian, Ahmadinejad's top adviser Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei stated three years ago that Iran should have "friendly ties" with the Jewish State, but Ahmadinejad has refrained from reiterating this position in public because of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's fierce objection. Nubian further claimed that the Iranian president personally told him that he supported Mashaei's statement, but couldn’t say anything out of respect to the leader.

    Have you ever stopped to think about the Genesis account of creation in light of God’s own admission that something wasn’t good? After all, we see in Genesis 1 that after everything God created he declared it “good,” culminating with the creation of man, which He called “very good.” So why in chapter 2, verse 18 does God admit that something is “not good?”

    Girls ask themselves this question. Guys ask the same thing too. Movie stars ask this question. First grade teachers ask it as well. This question greatly troubles some individuals, while others don’t struggle with it too much. Yet, the question is there. There are people who make this the objective of their life. It does not matter what they have to do, they will do it to bring about the desired result. Many parents worry about this with their children. They do so to their own detriment. Politicians typically don’t care about this as long as they get votes. Someone...

    Friendships are an important part of our lives. Ever since we were young, we have formed these relationships with other individuals and they have brought us times of sadness and happiness, exhilaration and frustration. Some of these friendships have been more shallow and superficial while others have been much more strong and long-lasting. As we grow and mature, we discover that these strong, fulfilling friendships require much effort and work to maintain. That’s probably why most people have so few of them. I’ve heard many individuals say, on a number of occasions, that they can count the number of good...

    Introduction How many people do you know by face or name? Most of us likely cannot count the faces we have known over the years. Faces come and go. When you are a child, it is easy to think that everyone is your friend. It is fun to talk about the things you are going to do together right up until the last day. Time often reveals that we do not have as many friends as we would have hoped. When you pass on, you will have been very fortunate to have had a group of true friends.There have been...

Police said Dwayne Moten, 20, was shot Saturday. He was driving a car in Dallas, stopped at an intersection and got out of his car, screaming for help. "He yelled he had been shot," a police spokeswoman said. Police arrived on scene and found Moten was suffering from "several gunshot wounds." Sr. Cpl.

    Dear Friend or Foe, I'm kind of a geeky person and have never had many friends. When I graduated from college, I moved in with a female roommate who monopolized my social life. Eventually we both moved on to romantic relationships without any drama. But she suddenly manufactured a huge fight, and we stopped speaking. Then I married, became involved in my husband's church, and made friends there. After I divorced, the church took the attitude that "nice women don't do that." My husband, who had never even attended regularly, was suddenly invited to eat Thanksgiving dinner with the minister,...

Growth is fed by family values, honesty, integrity and always stepping back to look at the bigger picture, putting oneself in the shoes of another, asking: Am I behaving the way I would want to be treated? A momentary immense anger can dissipate into nothing if we only evaluate the situation and ask ourselves: Why are we angry? What is it we are fighting? Is it worth our energy and emotions? Life is a blessing. I sometimes buy a lottery ticket, when the jackpot is...

Kim will be invited to become friends with those listed as friends of the President and vice versa. The potential is virtually unlimited.” Gibbs stressed the “breakthrough” nature of the move. “No previous administration ever thought of doing this,” Gibbs boasted. “It’s a fulfillment of...

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, suggested the relationship is tepid, telling the Politico that Mr. Obama does not appear to be a "true friend" to the Jewish nation. Some beg to differ, however. "Mr. Cantor has decided to position himself as the arbiter of who is and who isn't pro-Israel in this country. Setting aside Cantor's lack of sterling professional foreign-policy credentials, is it wise for him to set himself up as such a figure?" asks Ira N. Fornan, CEO of...

Why do people lose track of goals like this? The answer is the simple fact that they lack the ability to commit. A commitment is a vow you make between you and someone else. Whether it's just for yourself, or between a spouse,a friend, or the Lord. Commitment is by definition:

He was already a legend when I met him at the Irish Echo, 24 years ago. They said his generosity was incomparable,...

Ian MacDonald, The Montreal Gazette Published: Wednesday, July 04, 2007 For years, one of the most prized July 4 invitations in Washington has been to the Canadian ambassador's party on the embassy's sixth-floor terrace, with its unrivalled view of the U.S. Capitol and the spectacular fireworks over the Mall.
