70 Years Ago, Camden Man Became Nation's First Mass Murderer

His name, like the names of his victims, is nearly forgotten. 

But what Howard Unruh did 70 years ago today in Camden, N.J. foreshadowed the insanity of mass shootings we live with today.

He was with a girl a few years younger, a woman who looked to be a grandmother, and several small children. His role ...

Finding Happiness in Any Situation

What makes happy people happy? Why is someone who goes through a tragedy or lives in a horrible situation happy, while others who seem to have it all are miserable?
