Of all of the wars in which the U.S. has been engaged, none has been as divisive as the conflict in Vietnam. The repercussions of this unsettling episode in American history still resonate in our society. Although it ended more than 30 years ago, the Vietnam War continues to fascinate and trouble Americans. The third edition of Light at the End of the Tunnel gives a full overview of the conflict. Starting with Ho Chi Minh's revolt against the French, editor Andrew J. Rotter takes the reader through the succeeding years as scholars, government officials, journalists, and others recount the important events in the conflict and examine issues that developed during this tumultuous time. This book is essential reading for anyone who has an interest in understanding the Vietnam War. The readings in it will enlighten students about this turning point in the history of the United States and the world. The third edition includes greater coverage of the Vietnamese experience of the war and reflects the growing interest in understanding the war as an international event, not just a bilateral or trilateral conflict.

When the night is darkest, the day is about to break. The secular world statement that tough times do not last but tough people do, is so loaded, so much that if a man with senses can decipher the meaning beyond its face value; the depth begins to surface most specially when your toughness is rooted n God through Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

The reality is that very few of our loved ones will make it through addiction without huge costs. Some of them won t survive, and some of us won t survive to see them come through. I decided to give myself a motto to follow: What I cannot control will not control me. Judy Tomczak faced some heartbreaking experiences in her adult years, but nothing challenged her faith, health and spirit more than her daughter s battle with addictions. Judy faced losing her daughter again and again to the dangerous lifestyle that kept pulling her downwards. The guilt, shame, and fear that a mother feels while watching her child fight this battle is more than anyone can bear alone. This is the story of one mother s struggle to overcome that which she cannot control." "I read Judy s book in one sitting. I couldn t help myself. Her honest, candid description of life as the mother of an (entirely loved) addict drew me in, making me mad, making me laugh, making me hope that this time the change would stick. But it didn t. Over and over again, it didn't. But what did stick is a mother s love in the midst of unconscionable heartache and the Presence of a faithful, loving God whose specialty is healing hearts that seem beyond repair." - Ann Mainse, former co-host of "100 Huntley Street "and founder of" Full Circle. "If all Christian non-fiction writers would dare be this real, they would fill the bestseller lists every year. - Kerry McKibbon, Pastor s wife, Evangel Pentecostal Church, Brantford, Ontario" "This book is a must-read for any person that has had their life turned upsidedown because of a loved one s addiction. As a mother of a daughter with an addiction, Judy bravely outlines this journey and also captures the central role her faith played during this time. - Lindsay Serbu, Family Intervention Specialist/Concurrent Disorders Outreach Team Supervisor, St. Leonard s Community Services Addiction and Mental Health Programs " About the Author Judy Tomczak is the youngest daughter of Rev. Lorne Shepherd, founder of Heart to Heart Family Ministries. Life was relatively calm until her adult years but nothing challenged her faith and well-being more than watching her daughter fight the battle of addiction. Judy has committed herself to being a conversation starter and storyteller to do her small part in lifting the veil of guilt and shame that often surrounds mental illness and addiction. Knowing you are not alone is often the first step in seeking help."

My name is Kristine. I grew up in small town Missouri where you either knew everyone or everyone knew of you. I am a twin and the middle child of 5. When I was six my step dad began sexually, physically, and emotionally abusing my sister and I. At thirteen my step-dad finally went to prison and at seventeen my twin brother was murdered. I ran away shortly thereafter and found alcohol, sex and prescription drugs. Eventually I found Jesus Christ. Having learned how much God loved me to look at the events of my life as just things. I also learned that "All things (even mine) work together for the good of those who love the Lord and for those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28. God eventually led me to restore my relationship with my real dad, speak forgiveness to and share the gospel with my step-dad, write letters of forgiveness to those involved in my brother's death and boldly proclaim what He is doing in my life. These things have been used to relieve me from the need to drown my pain and emotions in alcohol and prescription drugs, give me a fulfilling relationship with my husband and show me that the "better life" comes from Him. Matthew 11:28-30 helped me to realize that my life wasn't mine. It was His. It was a gift I had to give back to Him. And it was His gift that I had to share with others. This caused me to begin writing and in April 2008 I was given the idea of beginning my own ministry. After six months of prayer God enlightened me on the idea of Freedom Rings Ministries and the a website www.freedomringsministries.com was born.

The Tunnel at the End of the Light: Essays on Movies and Politics

Author: Jim Shepard

Publisher: Tin House Books

Category: Literary Collections

Page: 272

The first book of nonfiction from one of our great fiction writers. A Publishers Weekly Best Essay Collection of Fall Given that most Americans proudly consider themselves non-political, where do our notions of collective responsibility come from? Which self-deceptions, when considering ourselves as actors on the world stage, do we cling to most tenaciously? Why do we so stubbornly believe, for example, that our country always means well when intervening abroad? The Tunnel at the End of the Light argues that some of our most persistent and destructive assumptions, in that regard, might come from the movies. In these ten essays Jim Shepard weaves close readings of film with cultural criticism to explore the ways in which movies work so ubiquitously to reflect how Americans think and act. Whether assessing the “high-spirited glee of American ruthlessness” captured in GoodFellas, or finding in Lawrence of Arabia a “portrait of the lunatic serenity of our leaders’ conviction in the face of all evidence and their own lack of knowledge,” he explores how we enter into conversations with specific genres and films—Chinatown, The Third Man, and Badlands among others—in order to construct and refine our most cherished illusions about ourselves.

Towards the Light at the End of the Tunnel is the autobiography of Gisela H. Schneider, a German civilian who experienced a hair-raising childhood and adolescence growing up in Hitlers Third Reich. After World War II, the author attempted under extremely dangerous conditions to find her brother and their mother and reunite their scattered family. The family lived behind the Iron Curtain for many years although the author herself was able to escape to West Germany in 1946 with the help of cousins. The author married soon afterwards and eventually immigrated with her husband and four children to the United States. But life in her new country was not without its personal challenges. Her marriage was not a happy one. After many years, she at last found the courage and determination to establish a new and rewarding life for herself on her own terms. Ms. Schneiders story is a riveting and inspirational tale of hope and survival under almost-unimaginable conditions. Considered in the historical context of her time, Towards the Light at the End of the Tunnel also presents a point of view of world events that is still very little known or even acknowledged in the United States.
