At some point we’ve all wanted to find and reconnect with someone. There may come a time when you hope to find somebody … but can’t quite remember their name.

Maybe it’s a friend you remember from childhood. Or a person you only met once. Perhaps it’s someone who wrote down their contact information for you – but you misplaced it accidentally.

Whatever the reason, trying to find someone when you can’t quite recall their name can be very frustrating.

International Day of the Disappeared

Monday, August 27th, 2012

It seems as if with all of the available technology, finding someone would be easy. Doing a quick people search can help you find relatives, old classmates or friends. There are cases, however, when it seems as if loved ones fall off the face of the Earth and there is no hope of finding them.

What Is The International Day Of The Disappeared?

The International Day of the Disappeared was started with the hope of finding those lost in war, conflict, violence or no known cause. The hope is to bring together families and loved ones torn apart from life’s most unusual events. In many cases, those missing are military personnel, though they may also be civilian victims of the war as well. This annual day of remembrance held on August 30th highlights the struggles of loved ones, and recognizes the importance of finding and bringing home the missing. Volunteers and others devoted to the cause have made it a point to offer services in many countries of the world.

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.
