Vietnam: The Way It Really Was. Vietnam: The Way It Really Was.
by Paul King

Paul King was seventeen when he joined the Army. As most enlistees, he really had no idea what he was about to experience. All he had was a desire to serve his country. He would serve in some of the most trying conditions. His memoir is often raw and brutally honest, both about the people and institutions he served, but more importantly, how he personally acted under the stress of his experience in Vietnam.

Heroes and Their Trees Heroes and Their Trees
by Nicole Morton

Trees can be found in most areas of the world. To you it may seem like there are so many trees that we can use as many as we want and it won’t matter, but the sad truth is that our tree populations are becoming smaller and smaller.

Many adults today don’t think the trees are important so they continue to cut them until the forests become too small for animals and other species to live in. Running out of trees leads to global warming which is bad for all living things, even us. It wasn’t always this way.

Since the beginning of time and continuing until recently, heroes in the form of Presidents, Kings, Pirates, mythical & storybook characters, and even giants have used or have been remembered with trees.

The Zen Parent Guide

The Zen Parent Guide
by Amy Giustino Talbot

My daughter recently asked me, “Mommy, what is it like to be a Mom?”
My daughter recently asked me, “Mommy, what is it like to be a Mom?”

I thought about it for a minute.

“Honey, it’s like going to the best party ever, except when it’s over, you don’t get to leave with your friends. You have to stay to clean up—alone.” And so it is with being a parent.

I have three, and I successfully travel around town. On a daily basis I need to remind myself that one day, I will, in fact, miss the constant state of chaos.

Maybe? Probably!
