There is more to preserving your family’s history than tossing it into a cardboard box and handing it down to the next generation. Without context and “curation” — the careful gathering, sifting, selection and preservation that takes place in any worthwhile collection — your family’s history can be lost to confusion or apathy as easily as it can succumb to dust or mold.
This week, I saw a report on what Jesus really looked like. Forensic scientists have worked with archaeologists to try to get a better idea of what he really looked like, compared to the most famous portraits we have today.

This week has been filled with a number of different reports on anti-Muslim rhetoric, most of which have been spurred by presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who called for a shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.
Christmas is probably the most celebrated holiday of the year. Billions of people set aside normal routines.
