a collection of recent posts by other bloggers

A number of blog posts or essays have captured our attention in the past couple of weeks.  We think that some of these essays may interest our readers.  Rather than reblog several of these insightful and thought provoking posts, we will include links to these for readers to choose from.  It is up to you to click on any of these links, read the articles, and reflect upon them.

The main subject areas are family (including foster children) and children related (bullying in school, travelling with children, fatherless children).  But, we also include an essay with some good advice for wives on not losing their husband’s love, and also share a link to a post on cancer and modern medicine.  A final linked post briefly discusses anger.  The children of the world represent the future of humanity, and as such it is critically important that we try to raise them to be responsible adults who will live constructive lives.  The family, the traditional family, is critically important to the future of the human race.

Amanda makes an impassioned plea to school administrators for giving a troubled foster child another chance.  The underlying question is how many chances ought we give to someone to reform his/her troubled life?  Is there a limit to forgiveness and patience?  Perhaps, we ought not be too quick in giving up on troubled children.  The loss of or waste of human potential is terrible.
