-- Eron Ben-Yehuda Despite the nippy weather, hundreds of people attended Sunday's religious ceremony at the pier, known as the Procession of Light -- 2000. "It brought the community together," said City Councilwoman Shirley Dettloff, who said she hopes the gathering of followers from about 20 faiths for song and prayer will become an annual tradition. The procession kicked off a yearlong series of events, with each month celebrating a different aspect of our lives, including education, environment, business, art and history.

MICHELE MARR One recent morning while doing dishes from the evening before, I found myself grumbling about members of a family I'm acquainted with. Thank God, for what it's worth, I was only grumbling to myself. They make a big hullabaloo about being Christians, I complained, and they talk like every single thing they've got in their lives is not only a blessing from God, but also a blessing and proof of their exemplary virtuous living. What's so holy about telling other people how swell God thinks you are?

Michele Marr Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity? -- Job 2:10 Last Saturday afternoon and part of Sunday I spent 24 hours in paradise. Or so it seemed. I hadn't anticipated it. I looked forward to the weekend and Veterans Day missing my father who is buried in the Riverside National Cemetery. I reckoned, along with so many other Americans in our post 9/11 nation, the price of my freedom, paid for me by others.
