“Faces Behind The Dust” changes are coming to this coal mining community. Now that ClaraBy’s father has retired from the mines, she and her family are preparing to move out of the hollow. ClaraBy—who is wrestling with the aches and pains of being a teenage girl—is beside herself with joy at the possibility of a new beginning, even though a big part of her wants to stay in the hollow she loves so much. But ClaraBy knows life is knocking at her door and she intends to live it to the fullest. ClaraBy is thrilled when her brother, Junior, surprises the family on a break from the army. After he enlightens her with stories of racism and gives her a heartfelt big brother talk, he returns to serving his country and ClaraBy and her family move away. But it is only after she comes back to visit that she begins to reminisce with the only friend left in the hollow, soon revealing not only unforgettable memories, but also unresolved issues from the past. Hello World, Here Comes ClaraBy Rose is the tale of a black teenage girl as she matures into a beautiful young woman determined to protect her innocence amid the lures of an uncertain world.

"Hot, sweaty, dirty, sore, and irritated, I began my solo journey to the other side of the planet." Alexis Morgan was realizing a lifelong dream: to go beyond her relatively easy North American lifestyle and extend a hand to those less fortunate than herself. Look Out World, Here I Come! is a gut-wrenching, heart-warming, and oftentimes hilarious compilation of the journals Alexis wrote during the years she and her husband lived and worked in Kenya as part of a Christian humanitarian agency. Weaving together actual-time stories of Alexis’s work and personal life, the reflections are real, raw, relatable, and poignant. As a wife and mother of three teenage/young-adult boys, Alexis shares some of her struggles in "letting go" and empowering her kids to become independent in a surprisingly similar way to the work she was striving to do with impoverished communities. Within these pages, readers will find inspiration and encouragement through her reflections on: • what it is like to live in a developing country as a Westerner, • the amazing strength and resilience of people when faced with extreme poverty, • the importance of gratitude for all that we have, including the riches of a loving family and community, • the key role of empowerment in fostering the development of individuals and communities • the relevance and significance of Scripture for working through real life issues. Join Alexis for a deeper understanding of the importance of family, home, community, love, strength, hope, perseverance and faith when facing and overcoming life's challenges.
In other words—they don't give up hope. Despite hunger, illness, suffering, and grief—not waiting idly by for someone to come and help them— they just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Amazing, isn't it?

The often overlapping discourses of nationalism and imperialism, along with related ideas of social decline, have been central in 19th- and 20th-century Anglo-European views of the world. This book offers four readings of Latin literary texts to show that the templates for these 'modern' discourses were forged in their essentials by the early Roman imperial period. Each chapter follows the relevant rhetorical thread in works of Horace, Tacitus or Juvenal, comparing their strategies with the defining structures of modern nationalist or colonialist discourses. General rhetorical principles can be discerned, remarkably persistent across time and circumstances. Classicists will find something new in an approach that systematically analyses the rhetorical strategies that underlie Roman prototypes of these discourses while demonstrating how closely later incarnations follow them.
Both offer reductions to absurdity, the one by critical design, the others insofar as all extremist discourses are ipso facto reductive in spite of themselves. ... Clearly we are dealing with two different worlds here.
