    Truth and Facts

    At sea level water boils at 212 degrees F.  I believe this is a fact that represents an observation based upon some arbitrary scale. I'm sure that with careful census someone can quote the percentage of children that got to bed hungry.  Let us say that it is 10% for...

    The Butchering Of Vocabulary

    Story goes as such... I was having a remarkably good morning as opposed to many stressful ones. We're having an excellent breakfast out as a family. My three year old daughter was happily sitting in the booth playing with a balloon the hostess gave her. She even had a really...

    The Lesson

    Another Lesson

    I did not see this event, but read about it quite a few years ago.  It was in a book written by a physician celebrating the human spirit. It seems that a man's wife of 30 years had a stroke, and the left side of her face drooped heavily.  He was out of town at the time...

    Lady In Waiting

      This true story is nothing new.  It is my guess that the same scene is played out hundreds of times on a daily basis, and I have no doubt that many of you have either witnessed or actually experience some variation of this scene.  It is just another chapter in...

    FT"s Trinity
