Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information. In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings. To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country. But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

Zamorano, Ed.D., will discuss personal experience in her role and journey of educating, empowering and inspiring a group that is often forgotten, with examples of those who she works with in two area shelters. She will outline the services and vision of each shelter. Wanda will argue that we can make a difference, changing lives, one meal at a time, and giving hope for the future. She further contends that you will open your mind and become inspired by virtually meeting some of the homeless in action!
December 16th Meeting #393
And Why Dallas? - Untangling the Mystery of
Dallas' Rise to Prominence
Paul Benson. Professor of Humanities, Mountain View College, will discuss how it has always been a mystery as to why Dallas has risen to become one of America's most important cities. He will argue that Dallas is not on a main body of water like Chicago or L.A., nor was it a capital, and it did not have a major State university. Paul also points out that Dallas weather is not particularly temperate, it has no dominant industry, and it is not blessed with any abundance of natural resources. He raises the question: "What did Dallas have that made it better than say Denison, Denton, or Decatur?". Paul will conclude unraveling this puzzle to bring to light a peculiar alignment of special people, groups, coincidences and luck!.
