It will feature a woodland walking trail, a coffee vending area and the latest advances in eco-friendly technologies. Rooms equipped with Internet teleconferencing capabilities will give an edge to powerbrokers, while more leisured visitors can relax near a lodge-like double-sided fireplace. Kids and young adults will even have their own private retreats.
As Thanksgiving approaches and I take time to count my blessings I am haunted with memories. I am haunted by the memory of so many stories of sexual impurity, drug and alcohol abuse and murder in schools and in the lives of teenagers. I am haunted by the brokenness of many marriages, and a divorce rate that is far too high. I am haunted by the memory of human slaughter done by governments which is so senseless and evil, the death of so many caused by hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes is difficult to even comprehend.
