The Children's Cabinet Offers A Promise We All Need To Be Kept

And a little child shall lead them.

The prophet Isaiah was absolutely correct, and the prophecy continues to come true each day.

Every child, in fact, is going to lead us one way or another, or in circles, as they grow into adulthood. They will take us toward darkness or they will take us toward light.

Making The SANEst Choices For Our Community

As previously reported, the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program once based at Centra Southside Community Hospital is gone because there were not enough sexual assaults in our community for the SANE nurse to maintain their competencies in Farmville. 

Victims of sexual assault in our community are transported by police to Centra’s SANE program in Lynchburg—which is able to maintain its competencies—for treatment.

The Rosetta Probe Is Already Very Much A Dream Come True

Take heart, Cubs fans.

The Rosetta probe gives hope to even life’s most elongated, interminable and far-reaching long shots.

The solar-powered unmanned European Space Agency probe has completed a decade-long, four-billion-mile pursuit of a comet, finally coming alongside between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars.

Responding To Sexual Assault In Our Community
Among the evil community of crime there are few criminal acts more heinous than rape.

Murder, yes. I’ll grant you that. But rape, clearly seen, is also a form of murder because it threatens to kill the very spirit and soul of the victim.

Something dies within them.

And, truly, no one can understand the impact of rape on the victim unless they, themselves, have been raped.

Rape is trauma within trauma.

STEPS In The Right Direction For Our Community

Three terrific organizations want to become the next community action agency for our community. The Lynchburg Community Action Group and the Halifax-based Tri-County Action Agency both do an excellent job providing services to their established service areas.

Ditto for STEPS, the third applicant.

The Heart Of Virginia Free Clinic And A Heart In The Heart Of Virginia

A word about Dr. Edward I. Gordon.

Or two.

Though, honestly, numbers will do just as nicely.

Five thousand times 12, for example, which equals 60,000.

Not so difficult a problem to solve.
