Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

December 7, 1941. The date was forever burned into the memories of an entire generation.

When do you plan to retire?

The average age of retirement used to be 65. Americans would plan for decades to make sure they were financially secure, and rely on social security benefits to help them enjoy their golden years. These days, however, things are different.

65 is no longer seen as the standard age when people retire. More of us are planning to work later in life; sometimes until we just can’t work any longer. For some, this is a personal preference. For millions more, this is a difficult and inescapably harsh reality.

World Communication Week

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Do you feel that our modern society has lost the art of personal communication? The simple act of two or more people talking, exchanging ideas and expressing emotions.

When you see the phrase personal communication these days, you might be inclined to think about electronic devices. Technology makes it easier than ever for people to stay connected. We can email, tweet or Facebook each other, find friends on Foursquare, and constantly check the current status of everyone we know. Our communication tends to happen on laptops, smart phones and personal tablets.

These are all great ways to keep in touch. But these same methods of connectivity may also be diminishing the act of one-on-one interaction. And nothing beats the simple exhilaration of two people talking to each other on the phone or in person.

Happy World Gratitude Day

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

What are you grateful for? It’s easy to dwell on the negative things in life. Our days get so hectic that most of us don’t have time to stop and think about all the little moments that make us smile. That’s why we’re celebrating World Gratitude Day.

Origin

In 1965 a group of dignitaries from several nations enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner together in Hawaii. They discussed the concept of creating one day each year to encourage people to focus on things that make them happy. All the attendees agreed to take this idea back to their home countries. From then on, September 21 was recognized as World Gratitude Day.

The founders of this happy holiday suggest spending it with family and friends, and meditating on things that bring you joy. Whether you share these thoughts with others or keep them private doesn’t matter. The point is to concentrate on the positive side of life and express your gratitude.

Patriot Day: We Will Never Forget

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Some events are so powerful that every detail becomes permanently etched into the minds of people who were there. A few are significant enough to impact the entire world. People will often share stories about how these moments affected their lives. These stories are passed on to every generation, because they must never be forgotten.

One of the most unforgettable and agonizing moments in American history began on September 11, 2001.

It started like any other morning. People woke up and prepared for a fresh new day. And then, without warning, everything changed. We heard the shocking news that a commercial airliner had crashed into one of New York’s Twin Towers.

The whole world stopped. We watched in horror as footage of the devastating crash was broadcast on every channel. We wondered what could have gone wrong. It wasn’t long before we learned the truth. Four planes had been hijacked. And things were about to get much worse.
