Be a light in someone's life

You and I both have the ability to be the happiness in someone's life. We have lips that can turn into a smile and a voice that can become a compliment. We have a soul that can burn like a candle when everyone around us feels like they are in the dark. As Matthew 5:14-16 says, "14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to ...

Column: The Wall That Heals comes to Camden

A black 18-wheeler will soon roll into town with an escort. On the trailer's front end are the words "The War and the Wall," on its back end, "The Wall That Heals." Along the wall's route, those words and much more cause adults and kids to stand at attention.

Exicted about The Wall That Heals

I am excited that The Wall That Heals is coming to Camden. I visited this exhibit in Feb. 2017 in Ft. Worth, Texas. I never thought it would be located here. It is difficult to imagine how this massive replica can be moved across the nation, to be set up in a different location each week. I have learned that the replica that will be in Camden is 50 percent larger than the one I saw in Texas.
