October’s Monthly Feature on “Stand By Me” advised us to choose our friends wisely, knowing that true friends will stick by us no matter what difficulties we face, while false friends will leave us to rot.
Two Weekly Blogs paid tribute to the memory of those who suffered directly from the 9/11 terrorist attack. “World Trade Center” reminded us to find hope when we’re helpless to help ourselves, trusting that our situation can still change. “United 93″ honored the airline passengers who fought against their terrorist hijackers - having nothing to prepare themselves but their own courage and instincts – and succeeded in stopping another terrorist attack.
Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse encouraged us to find common goals with others, rather than continuing an endless and pointless feud with them, while Stephen King’s Thinner warned us to treat others with respect and fairness, because if we don’t, they might treat us the same horrible way.
Have a great day!
