    Hi I'm looking for suggestions for some sweet, happy, lighthearted books that I can give as a gift to my friend. She is an extremely sweet girl who is healing from a trauma. She is a big book worm and a excellent writer. I'm looking for books that are meaningful or lighthearted as well as funny and sweet. Something that says "you are a beautiful, strong individual" but DOES NOT reference her trauma. No chicken noodle soup or self help crap. One of the books I'm thinking of is "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein. She is an adult but kids books are okay too. Especially about dinosaurs. All suggestions all welcome. Feel free to list multiple books as well. Thank you!

  • If the Holocaust happened why is illegal to deny it in so many places?

    If the Holocaust happened why is illegal to deny it in so many places?

    If the holocaust happened like Jewish people say it did why is illegal to even question it in all these different countries? If a government makes denying or questioning a specific event illegal, that event is most likely not entirely true.

    Until recent times, Christianity was unknown to African pygmies, Eskimos, Australian aboriginies, Chinese, and other nonwhite, non-European people. Neither when it is introduced to them, do they accept, and propagate it as did the people of historic Christianity (Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian, and related Europeans. The Bible tells us that God's Israel covenant people would be the custodians of Christianity. Does this not tell us that Christian Israelites located as---"the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad" (James 1:1) became the aforementioned people of historic Christianity?

    Best answer: I was leaving my office to go teach my first morning class hen the departmental secretary, who always had a radio on ran out to say a plane had just hit the TC. I topped and reminisced for a moment about the USArmy airplane that hit the Empire State Building, and went on to class. When I got to the classroom building someone ran out shouting a second plane had hit. I said "Good God, it's deliberate." Shortly after that class ended the college cancelled all classes or the day, so I walked home, and heard the first tower fall as I went--about 8 miles away

  • When we were attacked at Pearl Harbor were we already at war with the British or did the Civil War start because of that?

    Best answer: No, It was when Gen. Patton stormed San Juan Hill to stop Francis Scott Key from letting Rommel attack New York from the Panama Canal. Luckily Glenn Ford and Omar Sharif had a gallon of Prestone antifreeze to drink and history is as we know is the result. Hope this clears up any issues. For future reference... show more

  • How do i write faster for my English exams?

    Best answer: I went through this problem too and it reached the point where the faster I tried to write, the worse my handwriting got until it was basically scribbles!

    But I think you need to try practising at home with past papers or just set a time limit and write, write, write.
    And plan! as soon as you open your exam paper, read the question, highlight the key words and make sure you fully understand what its talking about. You don't get much time in exams but if you set 5/10 minutes at the start to make a small mindmap/spider diagram of the points you can use, it will make all the difference.
    Keep an eye on the clock at all times and try to make your paragraphs concise.

    Also in terms of writers block- everyone experiences it! obviously the worse time to get it is during an exam but just relax and try your best.
    good luck!
