It seems that most of the
global problems, which are affecting us globally, nationally, regionally,
locally, even personally, are based on religious intolerance or
misunderstanding. This site has it all, major and minor religions,
even styles of belief. But be aware, it presents all sides, and
tries to do it equally. A great resource!
I'm ready, take me.

The list grows. Famous people, regular people. Some were

me review the list.
This in from Jan Teuber, a foreign student
who lived in Grand Forks last year and graduated from Red River High
My Dear Friends,
When hearing about that tragedy happening just a few
days ago, I was more
than shocked. it was agonizing to see those pictures that are all over TV
at first I heard about it on the radio, sure that something like that
not possibly be true - but I was wrong. it was a terrible evening and an
more horrible night.
Some people might think that this is an internal
problem for the us, but
those are wrong. we are as involved over her in Europe. now we are showing
our support for the American people, which puts us on some list as well
haven't already been on there before). but that is secondary! It seems the
important to me that the western countries and their supporters work
now, thinking carefully about the consequences of their doing. at that
I'm proud that the first statement of solidarity from
any European country
came from Berlin. Although that might not be happening enough, you should
appreciate these signs of unity. they're are base for further steps.
But I think that you all are moved enough by now, and I
don't want take too
much of your time, so I wish you the best and believe in the strength that
you praised that often. it might be a wound, but it is certainly not
So, may God Bless America (and I do mean that).
