Friends at Christmas

Tuesday, December 17, 2019 by The Press in Opinion

It’s been three years. Nov. 29 was the third anniversary of the separation, but my marriage really ended several months before that, and badly.

I would not be where I am today without my son, Erick, and a special groups of friends who have been with me through this journey.

At the time of the separation, I did not know where to turn at that time, but I took a lesson from one of my sisters and kept communication open with a select group of friends. It has made a great difference.

Diamond and Silk hosts banquet

Diamond and Silk, two popular conservative social media personalities, urged people at the sold-out Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation’s 40th anniversary banquet to forget about political correctness and not allow themselves to be silenced on abortion.

“If we can advocate for women’s rights, we can advocate for the rights of the unborn,” Diamond said. “They have a right to life too.”

A time for saying thank you

Monday, November 25, 2019 by DEBRA PALMIERI in Opinion

Thanksgiving is traditionally a time for family and friends to gather around the table and catch up on events from the past year — new babies, new loves, new jobs, graduations and marriages.

They also fondly recall and share favorite stories of loved ones who have moved on and are no longer able to be with them on this special day.

Families give thanks for all their blessings and then share a meal while renewing connections with those who may have traveled from afar.
