'Deseret News National Edition': Anti-bullying, 'Heaven is for Real' and NFL Draft
On this week’s Deseret News National Edition, parents of a child with a hit list speak out to help other families, Kyle Van Noy explains why moms know best and the movie “Heaven is for Real” gets a review.
We hear about school violence far too often. Parents of a boy arrested for creating a hit list, share a unique perspective. Todd and Pam Gunter say they had the same question everyone else had, "Where did they go wrong?” Debbie Dujanovic has the surprising answers that could help a lot of families. Then, Dave McCann discusses a new anti-bullying program with the Gunters.
The Deseret News National Edition has been exploring how the Ten Commandments are being lived in modern society. The sixth commandment is "thou shalt not kill." The United States underwent a murder epidemic from 1963-1981. Then to everyone's surprise, the murder rates tumbled back down. But as Eric Shulzke reports, the overall murder rate misses the crux of the story.
Is heaven real? That's the question that the new film "Heaven is for Real" looks to explore. It is based on a book with the same title about a 4-year-old who envisioned he briefly visited heaven. But critics are questioning if the film is even about faith. National news writer Herb Scribner explains the debate and reviews the movie.
Honoring parents as life winds down is a challenge many adult children face. They wrestle with which promises to keep and when it is OK and even necessary to break them. Lois Collins explains with this look at the fifth commandment.
Next month, Kyle Van Noy will hear his name in the NFL draft. Years of practice, hours of training and countless football games have helped prepare him. But as he tells Dave McCann, it is the voice of his mother that got him here.
The Deseret News National Edition highlights Deseret News content centered around six areas of editorial emphasis: family, faith in the community, excellence in education, values in media and culture, causes related to helping the poor and financial responsibility. Each week, the program goes in-depth on these topics and brings insights from voices from around the country.
