War is Hell!

Open Letter To The MEEK

Upon my return from Japan in 1954, I was assigned to another Air Force Intel. Unit here in the States. A group of 20 of us were given the task to find out "How Do You Make Some One Talk Right Now?" We had unlimited sources of information from history, other services, people and the practices of other countries. I can only tell you our results were upgraded to Top Secret and re-assigned to "Washington." These methods were far more stringent than those allowed at Guatanamo.

To suggest that disallowance of these current procedures will influence our enemies to reduce similar procedures or lessen retribution to our soldiers is asinine.

Any method that will save the life of one or more U.S. lives is justified. WAR IS HELL!

To those of you who disagree.....please, please take a walk in the shoes of the of the vulnerable!

FamilyLife Offers Economic Relief and Hope for California Marriages by Inviting Couples in Foreclosure to Attend Marriage Conference for Free
FamilyLife Weekend to Remember events in California to be held through May

Little Rock, Ark. (April 14, 2009) – FamilyLife®, the global, donor-supported leader in marriage conferences, will present Weekend to Remember® in six locations throughout California during the months of April and May. The Weekend to Remember marriage conference aims to strengthen healthy marriages and heal troubled ones in an engaging, supportive and non-threatening environment.

While every couple is encouraged to attend, FamilyLife would like to extend a special invitation to couples who have been hit especially hard by the economic crisis to attend the Weekend to Remember conference for free. Couples who are in the midst of a foreclosure or have gone through foreclosure in the past six months can register by calling 1-800-FLTODAY. Thanks to support from generous donors, a limited number of free registrations will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"It's no secret that money issues are among the top causes of divorce, and with the economy the way it is, elevated financial problems are taking a very serious toll on many marriages and families," said FamilyLife President, CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Dennis Rainey. "The threat of losing your home to foreclosure only compounds the stress within marriages. Regardless of your financial situation, you need to make marriage a priority. In that spirit, our goal is to support couples during these uncertain times and equip them with the necessary communication and conflict resolution tools to survive this crisis as a team."

During the months of April and May, FamilyLife's Weekend to Remember will be held throughout California. The following conferences are accepting registrations.

  • Sonoma (Rohnert Park) – April 17-19 at the Doubletree Sonoma Wine Country
  • San Ramon – April 24-26 at the San Ramon Marriott
  • Los Angeles (Woodland Hills) – April 24-26 at the Warner Center Marriott
  • Irvine – May 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Irvine
  • Santa Clara – May 1-3 at the Santa Clara Marriott

"While this conference can assist those couples looking for an overhaul, it's also a positive way to impact and fine-tune all marriages," said Dr. Rainey. "We live in stressful, distracting times, and amidst the blur of modern life it becomes alarmingly easy for couples to grow apart. That's why it's critical to strengthen your connection before the gap between you grows too wide. We developed the Weekend to Remember to do just that – help couples enhance and strengthen their most important earthly relationships."
