Annual On the Road to Remember Tour 2013 with CUE Center for Missing Persons

2013 marks the ninth year for CUE Center for Missing Persons annual On the Road to Remember Tour covering thousands of miles across the United States to bring awareness to missing persons and unsolved cases, many which have never been featured in media. The Road to RememberTour dates for 2013 are October 3-12th, ending with a grand finale at CUE headquarters in Wilmington, NC. Each year covering a different route, the tour will be hitting the following states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama offering the opportunity for all families with missing loved ones, or those who advocate for them, to participate.  The annual tour was created to generate new interest in cold cases of missing people across our nation.

Giving JOYFULLY: Alternatives to Black Friday and Reducing the Stress of the Perfect Gift!

With all the stories in the news today, Black Friday, expressing the ends to which people will go towards getting that “good deal,” let’s take a serious look at the facts: Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death by 2008 Black Friday Shoppers   Gas money spent, at well over $3 a gallon: wasting resources. Getting up in the middle of the night: wasting your resting time. Standing in lines: wasting your emotional well being. Risking danger: just a total waste to put your life at risk.
