But their crusade is not from the pulpit or in the pews. Instead, United Believers has taken to the streets to promote family literacy. Recognizing that families play a key role in helping children hone their literacy skills and foster a love of reading beginning at birth, the organiza tion recently convened Family Reading parents with the necessary tools. Believers, thinks the home environment is critically important for younger read ers. She maintains that if students do not see people reading in the home, it may be harder to instill the idea of reading for pleasure. I must concur with her. Sup portive and understanding parents are critical in developing their childs reading habits. If children do not enjoy reading when they are young, chances are they are not likely to do so when they get older. So, it all starts in home. To illustrate the importance of reading, a father and his two children reenacted the reading session he holds in his home at the Sept. 8 event. But what riveted the mes sage was a dramatization where seven children representing the All-Americathe following tips for parents to moti vate and help children develop a love for reading: system that replaced Edline to allow parents, guardians and students to log in and get important information on academics and attendance) engaging, and parents can learn about what goes on in the classroom) United Believers is not alone in its quest. For six years, the Delray Beach Education Board has been holding Delray Reads to promote reading at an early age. Each year, in November, more than 250 community leaders and resi dents are dispersed to the local elemen tary schools to read to students for an hour. They also learn how they can help the schools and students. This year the committee se by author and illustrator David Ezra Stein. They will also have a celebrity breakfast. Previous speakers were Ron President Kevin Ross, NBA referee and founder of the National Basketball Referees Associations TIMEOUT for Reading program, Marc Davis, and last year, Dwight Stephenson, a Hall-of -Fame former Miami Dolphin and the winner of the NFL Man of the Year Award. The lesson learned is that when parents, regardless of their socioeconomic status, read with their young children, it increases the likelihood of them developing a love for reading. Use the Life You Still Have! If you think your life is over, you can be pretty sure that it is not. If you can read or hear these words, What you face may be unbearable at the moment, you may have lost enthusiasm for any new challenge, and your joy of living may be at an all-time low. Yet, even then, you are still breathing, and something can Just think: as long as there is life in you, some kind of accomplishment remains open to you. It may be different in nature from past activi ties, your lack of strength, or your decreased health may not permit you to tackle certain challenges. However, you can renew your strength by positively thinking of something new whereby to make a valid contribution to fellow hu mans, even if in your own mind this exceeds your powers and abilities to deliver. Keep in mind that your capacity to think that your days have ended on earth, is in itself an indication that this is not so. You just need to refo cus and seek wisdom, determining what you can still contribute. Dont think of what you did in years gone by but just on what you can still do It is to be expected that ones zest for life and in life decreases, on ac count of illness, due to advancing age, diminished abilities, and many additional normal obstructions or previously unknown limitations. Nevertheless, you can still open your eyes each new day, and boldly inquire: What can I attempt today that can make a positive difference to other lives? It is not the magni tude of an act, nor the abundance of a deed that will make it sig heart, and its done in the best way one can, unquestionably the impact will surpass ones expectations. Dont allow any paralysis of thought or action to hinder you in seeing a tive effort to completion. You are still alive and you can do it, with life you still have.

A very large crowd enjoyed some great healthy food and an appearance by The Brain Bowl Cocktail Reception FAITH By Robert J. Tamasy Have you ever chosen not to attempt things because of fear you might fail? Maybe it was assuming greater responsibility at work, trying to change careers, or even attempting to begin an ambitious self-improvement program? I have to admit having been guilty of that several times. This is ironic, because if we decide not try to do something, there is 100 percent certainty we will not accom plish it. Not long ago I came across a quote from an unknown source that states, Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try. Sounds like a no-brain er, because it seems like common sense. But when we confront a challenge and determine it is not worth the effort or this sense is not so common after all. Most of us are familiar with the classic case of Thomas Edison, inventor of the incandescent light bulb, who had to make hundreds of attempts before he cal light as he had imagined. Scanning the other examples. But my intent here is not to celebrate the successes of those to tried and persisted. Rather, it is to mourn all of those who have conceived great ideas, but failed because they were unwill ing to try. Mencius many centuries ago expressed it in other terms: The difference between with failures. My friend, Mike, comes to mind. Years ago he chose to leave a secure, well-compensated job to start a software consulting company from of his house, his makeshift desk consist cabinets. He knew it was risky, having a small family and leaving the certainty of a steady paycheck, along with corporate As bills began to mount and he ness, Mike was tempted to give up on his dream. What was I thinking? he asked himself more than once. But he deter mined to continue pursuing his vision and found a much-needed client just in the nick of time. Over time he and a small staff built the business into a successful international company. Mike experienced neurial vision; his faith also grew greatly through in the process. If we have a vision or a pursue it wavering, what should we do? The Scriptures give us some insight: Place your trust in the right place. Even the most talented and experienced people have times when their resolve is tested by adversity. However, if we believe not taking that step would be an act of disobedience. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowl edge him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). priority. Before making any major deci prayer, sincerely seeking His wisdom and He is leading, we can be assured He is with us in what we are trying to do.

Locally, volunteerism has always been at the heart of Boca Raton, perhaps even more so than in many other cities in line up to help in this town. With more than 60 local charities to choose from, the options for residents to support some thing they believe in are almost endless. One such cause is my own char ity, the American Disabilities Foundation, Inc., and our annual event, the Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities. The Bash celebrated its 10th anniversary this past March. It has evolved into the largest, free, one day event in the nation for families with special needs. Held lo cally at Spanish River Park in Boca, this years Bash hosted nearly 6,000 people of all ages and with every imaginable dis ability. Our guests and their caregiv ers are treated to a day of riding private yachts, enjoying a BBQ picnic, playing games based on abilities not disabili ties, and getting to enjoy a concert that celebrates diversity. But this unique day would be impossible without the volunteers who support it. A core group of 25 steer the event during the six month plan ning stage. But on the day of the Bash upwards of 400 people of all ages step forward to make this a memorable day every attendee. As for me, I was disabled from an accident in 2001. My wife Lowell has a brother who has been institutionalized for 50 years. Together, our commitment to helping others has never wavered. It has meant dedicating our retirement years to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. What about our other committee members? In a recent survey we discov ered that every member of our team has been touched by a disability, which motivated them to join with us in giving back and helping others who have been similarly impacted by physical or even mental challenges. Their deeply personal reasons, which we hope to share with you in the coming weeks, underscore the fact that disabilities are never far from our own front door.

In addition, gunrelated suicide rates in the U.S. are about eight times higher than other high-income countries. For decades, there have been striking regional variations in deaths from homicide.
