“Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.” ~ President Theodore Roosevelt
As we approach the 51st anniversary month of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a new biography, “Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story,” by Barbara Leaming, is released. The subtitle, “The Untold Story,” is appropriate as it reveals intimate details, conversations, and correspondence which I think the American public has not been privy to earlier. As a devoted fan of Jackie’s like so many of us young women were in the ’60s, I continued to admire her through the years and thought I had read everything written about her. Yet in this biography I felt I was getting to know the real person, not the public figure. I think Leaming has captured Jackie’s thought processes and motivations for many of her actions following the assassination. Although not always presented in a flattering light, by the end of the book, I found myself admiring her even more, yet with a deep sorrow for what she endured throughout her life that the public was probably not aware of.

The newspapers now seem to have many articles about the Christians living in the mid-east being persecuted, and killed. Beheading seems to be the selected punishment for being a Christian. This bothers me, but what is happening in America bothers me more, as it is under our control.
It’s great that we’ve been getting so many stories these days that intelligently address dynamics between siblings. The best recent examples include Richard Linklater’s all-too-authentic “Boyhood,” Disney’s beloved “Frozen,” and the brilliant animated series “Gravity Falls.” “The Skeleton Twins” is another strong look at the relationship between a brother and sister.

My youngest son started middle school this year. On the first day of classes, climbing on the bus with all his No. 2 pencils and three-ring binders, he also carried with them enough anxiety to fill a mama’s boy’s backpack. It wasn’t just the reality of a new school that put them on edge; it was middle school, and that is scary enough all on its own.

There are so many unconstitutional acts used by President Obama that it is hard to chronicle all of his actions. One issue is his use of the Executive Orders that he keeps using. If he sends a bill to Congress and it doesn’t get passed, Obama issues an Executive Order to accomplish his actions. This, of course, is against the Constitution. The Constitution specifies that Congress passes bills, the president executes bills, and the Judiciary reviews them for constitutionality. By eliminating Congress from legislation he has decided to become a dictator of a Totalitarian government, and unfortunately is succeeding in his subterfuge.
