The Christian landsape is littered with the bodies of believers who are victims of "friendly fire": the legalistics, judgemental, or negatively critical words or actions of others believers. Friendly Fire is Mike Warnke's survival guide for believers battered by the religious among us. He offers encourgement and hope for the Church's "walking wounded" in their journey toward healing, restoration, and wholeness. No matter what has happened, no believer is too far gone to come back. God stands ready and willing to heal and restore. With warmth, humor, and insight gained from his own personal experiences, the author provides a soothing balm for believers nursing the wounds inflicted by "friendly fire"
Hundreds of memoirs, novels, plays, and movies have been devoted to the American war in Vietnam. In spite of the great variety of media, political perspectives and the degrees of seriousness with which the war has been treated, Katherine Kinney argues that the vast majority of these works share a single story: that of Americans killing Americans in Vietnam. Friendly Fire, in this instance, refers not merely to a tragic error of war, it also refers to America's war with itself during the Vietnam years. Starting from this point, this book considers the concept of "friendly fire" from multiple vantage points, and portrays the Vietnam age as a crucible where America's cohesive image of itself is shattered--pitting soldiers against superiors, doves against hawks, feminism against patriarchy, racial fear against racial tolerance. Through the use of extensive evidence from the film and popular fiction of Vietnam (e.g. Kovic's Born on the Fourth of July, Didion's Democracy, O'Brien's Going After Cacciato, Rabe's Sticks and Bones and Streamers), Kinney draws a powerful picture of a nation politically, culturally, and socially divided, and a war that has been memorialized as a contested site of art, media, politics, and ideology.
Emotions. Life. The saying goes that the eyes are the windows to your soul. Given that to be true, then I submit that life's experiences are the lifeline to the heart. For every experience, there is a new piece added to the heart. With each new experience, comes an emotion. Many come with emotions. Many emotions are new, many are somewhat the same, yet independent of themselves. Each also carries varying degrees at which each emotion is felt...each experience a piece, of varying size, of the heart. And it's the culmination of those experiences that make up our heart. Which emotions do we feel strongest? Which emotions seem to control us? Which emotions make us weak. We all experience differently, create differently, and envision differently. We all have varying degrees of emotions, through our experiences and through our creativity and visions. This collection of experiences will take the reader into a past of memories, triggering thoughts and maybe a smile or two. This collection may take the reader into a present thought process, triggering experiences that readers may be encountering now. Finally, this collection will take the reader deep into thought about their visions of the future. This is a feel good collection of poems that will set the reader at ease, yet will delve into some deep emotions. Enjoy!
This collection examines the subject of friendly fire through the eyes of international experts in the field.
The letters A.C.L.U. sound like the "very hiss of the anti-Christ" in Utah, writes Linda Sillitoe. Yet Spencer L. Kimball, the Mormon church president's son who founded the local chapter, attracted to the organization men and women of religious orientation. Utah chapter president Stephen Smoot, descendant of another Mormon leader, felt that the ACLU promoted the same values as his own church. Michele Parish -- a Methodist minister's wife -- described her ACLU-Utah directorship as "an answer to a prayer." The current chapter leader, a grandmother, also defies public perceptions as she champions such issues as gay rights. A public force in Utah for half a century, the ACLU has battled, among other injustices, a leading politician's desire to have Salt Lake City's African Americans relocated to a ghettoized neighborhood. Such discrimination survives in more subtle ways today in the public strip-search of a long-haired teenager and the detainment of a building subcontractor for carrying "too much cash." Sillitoe's accessible history treats internal upheavals in tandem with ongoing skirmishes with outside forces. In this tale of political clout and paranoia, law enforcement muscle, and varying moralities, Sillitoe gives an inside view of the push and shove of competing agendas.
