The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened to the public on April 26, 1993, with a dedication ceremony attended by President Clinton, Vice President Gore, and many national and international dignitaries.
In this essay I would try to describe my experiences about the Holocaust Museum in Los Angeles. The museum, of course, has special meaning to Holocaust survivors and to the American...

Much intelligent discussion of the current security crisis that the United States, and not just the United States, faces has centered on to what extent we and other civilized countries now find ourselves at war -- and if indeed we are at war what constraints precepts of natural justice and sound international jurisprudence impose on the retributive military actions that our government, perhaps aided by its allies, is currently contemplating.

Yards of Freedom
A hundred by fifty yards of artificial turf and granulated rubber is where I feel serene. Whether it is sweating through practice or struggling for success against an opponent, my heart feels full.
