"The Dark Knight Rises": Helping Us All To Heal

How can we move forward knowing even a movie theater is not a safe place? The Dark Knight Rises is a great example of the mythic hero's journey. The hero's journey is one way to develop your inner strength. You can't attain inner strength by depending on others; you can see others as mentors, but the task or call is yours to figure out.

Online Dating Safety: 7 Signs He's A Criminal

Online dating is generally safe, and most people you find will be normal, good-natured men and women who are simply looking for love. You also may bump into a small number of strange people (e.g. men who show up on a date with their wedding rings on, or the supposed-to-be Brad Pitt look-a-like who shows up looking a little bit aged and 100lbs heavier than his photo suggested) and they will probably be harmless.
