The old saying goes… you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your family?  But what if you could?  Well for some people that is exactly what happens.  On average there are over 400,000 children in foster care each year and of the 135,000 children are adopted each year, 59% come from the fost...

J.K.Rowling couldn't have imagined the phenomenon she created when she originally spun a story about a magical world and a boy wizard.  Like so many of the comic book superheroes, Harry Potter has become its own universe with avid fans of all ages worldwide.  When the eight films ended there was a certain sadness to see it all come to...

She was a talented writer. She had compassion and conviction.  The combination made her words powerful and she became one of the most respected war correspondents in the world.  That compassion and Conviction are also likely what got her killed.  Running into war zones while others ran away, she told their stories… the soldier...

Terrorism is a worldwide threat and as the saying goes… "we don't negotiate with terrorists".  But what if they somehow found a way to infiltrate the most secure aircraft in the world...Air Force One?  What if they took the President of the United States and his family hostage?  What if they were holding all the card...

If you were an African American in this country in the 1960's and 1970's it was a tumultuous time.  Desegregation caused violent outbreaks all over the United States.  The Ku Klux Klan was building their "army" and recruiting those with similar ideology to join their cause while black men and women were protesting in the streets...

In 1957 Random House published Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  It told the story of a green, furry creature who hated Christmas - can you believe that!?!  Over the past sixty-one years, it has been made into several movies both animated and live-action.  This holiday season Illuminations has taken on the challenge with it...

It seems anything can be made into a superhero-themed book/show/movie these days and DC comics proved that when they created the Teen Titans comic book series that became an animated television show in 2013.  The premise of the show is that of a group of teenagers with superpowers who are trying to be like their adult counterparts in saving th...
