  • On occasion, I find myself wishing I could turn back the clock.
    Actually, turning back the clock is not what I want to do.
    I want to roll back the calendar until we reach the mid-1950s.
    Ah, those were the days. I was a kid and was not held responsible for adult matters.
    It was a simpler time — simpler because someone else was in charge, including in charge of me.
    There is something else inviting about the mid-1950s.

  • From the back door, Sarah looked into the yard and was pleased with what she saw.
    Jared and his friends seemed to be having a grand time.
    They had chosen up teams and were playing basketball on the court Paul had built for them.
    As she was turning away, she spied Lawrence.
    Oh, she thought, I’m so glad he came. He is such a polite and good boy. She was, however, a bit concerned about the age range of the boys in the backyard.
    Some were really too young to be playing with boys the age of Jared and his buddies.

    Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (also known as SIDS or crib death) is when a baby 12 months or younger dies during sleep with no clear reason.  
    There is no 100 percent certain way to prevent SIDS, but there are many steps you can take to lower your baby’s risk.  

  • Will 2016 become the year our fears overwhelm us?
    It could be.

    Violence seems to be on the rise—though I sometimes wonder if the reporting of violence is what is on the rise.
    A reported event at a Louisville mall changes our shopping habits.
    The manner in which someone is dressed raises concerns we didn’t feel a few years ago.
    Shooters shoot and bombs explode, leaving us wondering what and who comes next.
    How are we to respond?
