  • The Marine Corps’ Marine For Life program is looking for New Mexicans to serve as mentors for Marine veterans.
    As a Marine For Life mentor, volunteers can be key in helping Marine Corps veterans navigate the way ahead — whether they are Marine veterans who care about other Marines, or someone in the community wanting to help Marines succeed in civilian life.
    Marine veterans returning to the civilian community can benefit from volunteers’ life experience. As a mentor in the Marine For Life organization, they can help those who have honorably served the country in the Marine Corps and are moving on to civilian life.  Their knowledge, counsel and personal network can help a Marine veteran succeed.

  • Los Alamos High School National Honor Society would like to thank everyone in Los Alamos that contributed school supplies for the children of Haiti.
    The Honor Society collected school supplies at locations around town from November 2010 through February 2011. Last September one of the Honor Society parents met the Right Reverend Zache Duracin, the Episcopal Bishop of Haiti, and he stressed the need for school supplies for the children of Haiti.  
    Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake Jan. 11, 2010 in which over 250 schools run by the Episcopal church were demolished. He explained that many organizations and people have been helping with food, shelter and medical supplies, but school supplies were not being given.

  • “The news the past few weeks has been disturbing for someone who believes that we are to love our enemies.  How do I think about bin Laden and love for enemies at the same time?" — Christopher

    When Jesus instructed His followers to love their enemies (Mt. 5:44-48), He established an ideal that is scarcely possible. It is not our natural inclination nor is it typically within our ability to love unconditionally those who are bent on our destruction.
    The ideal still stands, however. Consider this: He was not telling His hearers to disregard harm done or to overlook potential danger from one’s enemies.
    He was, rather, extending to them a high calling: earnestly desire the redemption of your enemies.
