Have you ever tried to have a meaningful conversation with a teenager when he's in a room full of friends with the television going on and he's texting someone? Or a toddler who has a room full of toys before her and a Disney movie on the television? It's nearly impossible. You may get grunts and head shakes at the appropriate times, but what are they really grasping? And if they convey anything in return, other than a grunt, does it make any sense to the conversation?

Seven Days of Hope: Day 4, A Life Derailed

Have you ever ridden on a train?  I mean other than the little ones that go around a figure eight track at the fair?  I’ve ridden on the Tweetsie train in Boone, North Carolina, but I haven’t done any real rail travel.  It is said to be fast, efficient, economical and relatively safe; however, they can derail causing inconveniences, injuries and, sometimes, death.  Just a quick Google search this morning turned up an article about a train derailing in New York City and one derailing in Chicago, two cities who are known for their rail travel. A derailing train is [...]
