Need to Stay Near Home?

Sometimes traveling light through life requires all of us to stay near home or even at home. If that is your situation, following our two ideas you can utilize this April:

1st Idea: Travel Via the Internet to WWI Museum & Memorial

According to Matthew Naylor (WWI Museum/Memorial director), today’s news stories trace their origins to decisions made in WWI. He stated, “The long shadow of the war still impacts us today.”

On April 6th Kansas City’s WWI Museum & Memorial will host the Centennial Commemoration of the US decision to enter WWI.

The ceremony will include flyovers by U.S. aircraft and Patrouille de France (Aerobatic team of French Air Force) as well as two color guards, ceremonial units, and video productions.

The show also features music of the period under the direction of Michelle DiBucci, special appearances by members of the KC Symphony and U.S. military bands. Notable performers participating in the event include: Kevin Costner, solo R&B artists Billy Cliff and Lisa Fischer, baritone John Brancy with pianist Peter Dugan, and Kansas City Lyric Opera featured artist Samantha Gossard.

Invited attendees include dignitaries and representatives from U.S. military legacy units that trace their history back to World War I and descendants of significant American WWI figures.

Live Stream of the ceremony viewable starting at 10:00 a.m. on April 6, 2017.

2nd Idea: Travel to Your Local Theatre to see Facing the Darkness.

During the 2014 Ebola Epidemic in Africa only two relief agencies battled the outbreak of this horrific disease: Doctors Without Borders and Samaritan’s Purse. The rest of the world couldn’t be bothered.

Facing the Darkness follows the work of the Medical Team of Samaritan’s Purse at the Elwa Hospital in Liberia. Victims of Ebola die in agony as they bleed from every orifice of their bodies.

Attention was finally drawn to the plight of the Africans when Dr. Kent Brantley (a member of the Samaritan’s Purse team) was brought to the US for treatment after contracting the disease from his patients.

Facing the Darkness was scheduled for a one-time show on March 30th. Tickets sold out.
An encore presentation is scheduled for Monday, April 10th
Don’t miss your second chance to view the film. Get your tickets today.

Here’s the link to find a theater in your state:
