As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Remembering Miss Asia Cotton on 9/11

    On this day, 18 years ago, 11-year-old Asia Cottom from Washington, D.C. boarded Flight 77, along with two of her classmates and three of her teachers. She and her classmates had been selected to fly from D.C. to Channel Island in Santa Barbara, to take part in National Geographic’s Sustainable Seas Expedition.

    The purpose was to study marine life, but there would be plenty of fun as well – kayaking, beach trips, and even the chance to swim with dolphins. This was a unique opportunity, and she was so excited about the trip that she spent time in advance, doing research on her computer. She couldn’t wait to learn, but she also couldn’t wait to get into the water. This was going to be an amazing experience.

    Thirty-five minutes into the flight, terrorists hijacked the plane, and steered it into the Pentagon, killing all 64 passengers, crew, and another 125 victims in the building.

    Asia was just starting Middle School in Washington, D.C. Asia was not typical, by any standards. She loved to read, and loved science, math and computers, with the hope to become a pediatrician when she grew up. She had attended a computer camp prior to starting Middle School, and looked forward to sharing her experience with her fellow students.

    She also loved her faith, and at her church, she served as an usher, a member of the dance group, and a singer in the church choir. On her own, she loved to study the Bible and wrote her own commentary to some of the more challenging passages."

    And she is now highlighting the plight of so many other Christians in the same mortal danger.

        She is speaking up about other Christians who are killed, in prison or in the same mortal danger for blasphemy as she was. Its not in the progressive left wing media because they are more interested in Malala and her activism for uneducated women, particularly in Parkistan, except that Asia Bibi also was and she said nothing. Mainly Muslim women only then.

        I am still surprised you havent heard though

          I was going to dismiss that as incoherent babble but I won't call it incoherent babble since if I call it incoherent babble someone is going to say that it is insulting to the speaker of such incoherent babble to call what they said is incoherent babble...

          Oh, hang it. It's incoherent babble.

            I guess you missed this part:

            Thirty-five minutes into the flight, terrorists hijacked the plane, and steered it into the Pentagon, killing all 64 passengers, crew, and another 125 victims in the building.

            she died on that flight 18 yrs ago. I donít think sheís doin a lot of talking unless itís through mediums...

                I did. I was referring to Asia Bibi which is not who the thread is about. So apologies and thank you for the memory of Asia Cotton.

                  That would account for the fact that is was incoherent babble.
