  • ESSAY: After 9/11, searching for American optimism

    NEW YORK (AP) — Before the towers crumbled, before the doomed people jumped and the smoke billowed and the planes hit, the collective American memory summoned one fleeting fragment of beauty: a clear blue sky.

    So many of those who remember that day invoke that detail. Last week, New York magazine, which has been running a 9/11 "encyclopedia" ahead of the 10th anniversary, added an entry for "Blue: What everyone would remember first." It chronicled nearly a dozen of the ways that Americans recalling 9/11 anchor their looks back with a reminiscence of blue sky.

  • Saluting Citizenship Day

    Once a year, we stop arguing about immigration, abortion, taxing the rich, drilling national reserves, and other typical dinner conversations that usually result in throwing food and dishes at each other.
    Once a year, we turn our eyes towards those stars and stripes waving in the distance, and we remember why we’re able to argue over these things.  We have the freedom to disagree.
    Sept. 17 is “Constitution Day,” a day set aside by the U.S. Department of Education to observe and honor the history of our Constitution.  
    On Sept. 17, 1787, the final draft of the Constitution was sent to Congress. Nine months later, (June 21, 1788,) Congress ratified it. So was our country “born” on 9/17/87 or 6/21/88?

  • IMHM offers introduction to Roman Catholic faith

    Each year, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos offers a program designed for adults who are seeking to know more about the living God through an understanding of the mystery Jesus Christ proclaimed. The program is titled, the “Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.”
    Participation is open to everyone, ranging from those who may just be curious to learn what the Catholic Church has to offer, to those who have already responded to the Gospel message and may have participated in other Christian communities, and those lapsed Catholics who may feel drawn to return to the church.
