This plea is dedicated to Tanya's mom. After I arrived to remove Tanya's body, Mom cried, “She's my baby."
And to the wife with her daughters, looking at the casket of their husband and father as one daughter asked, “Mommy, what are we going to do?”
No one wants to die.
Don't sentence your family to a life of sorrow.
For assistance, call 800-273-TALK, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Patterson's gone — as he should be
Countless articles have been published about the scandal involving Paige Patterson and Southwestern Baptist Seminary.
The Star-Telegram continues to stoke the coals, but why?
Patterson was removed from all positions.
The seminary acted appropriately. Patterson is history.

Move on with Waterside zoning
Fort Worth Councilman Brian Byrd should not have delayed the vote on the contentious Waterside-Cassco zoning issue.
Byrd has had many months to work out an agreement between these two parties and now needs more time.
Whom does he think he’s kidding?
Missed reading about D-Day
I am disappointed at the little mention of D-Day.
We have so much negative stuff as headlines.

D-Day sacrifice too easily forgotten
Seventy-four years ago, 156,000 men stormed the beaches of Normandy to forever change the world for good.
Thirty-one thousand of them gave their lives for this great cause.
That victory should be honored.
Remembering the greatest generation
During the dead of night, thousands of troops parachuted into the darkness, and at dawn thousands more landed on the beaches.
This was the “greatest generation.”
Too many lost over fake causes
We might better honor the fallen by remembering that many brave Americans have been sent off to die because of lies.
The Mexican War, the Spanish-American War, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq War all started because of government lies.
Who doubts for a minute the current occupant of the White House would lie and start a war if it would distract from the investigation of his administration?
