I told my young kids that we were attacked by some fundamentalist Muslims. And that we then attacked them. They asked me, in their own way, who these people were. I explained that they took their holy book very seriously, and that their holy book demands the death or subjgation of all nonbelievers.

I would tell them the same thing, today. Because it is the simple truth.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
