Erkenne die Liebe. Erkenne die Gefahr. Mitten auf einer einsamen nächtlichen Landstraße bleibt Marias Auto liegen. Ein Wagen hält, ein bedrohlich aussehender, muskelbepackter Mann steigt aus – und wechselt ihr freundlich den Reifen. Colin Hancock hat schon viele dumme Entscheidungen in seinem Leben getroffen und bitter dafür büßen müssen, eine Beziehung ist das Letzte, was er sucht. Doch so wenig Maria und Colin zusammenzupassen scheinen und so sehr sie sich auch dagegen wehren: Sie verlieben sich rettungslos ineinander. Aber ihnen droht größte Gefahr, denn ein finsteres Kapitel aus ihrer Vergangenheit holt Maria ein und lässt sie um ihr Leben fürchten. Werden die alten Dämonen alles zerstören, oder kann ihre Liebe Colin und Maria in der dunkelsten Stunde retten?
'I am me, and I love every piece of me. I love all of you. I see things that I wish all of you could see; it would make your tummies smile too!' Come into Melissa's world, where beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Mommy See Me, by Michelle Tipton, is a journey of self-exploration, one that defies society's idea of beauty.

As Melissa begins school, she realizes she must teach others that beauty is not just skin deep. Look on the inside and discover the unique parts that make you beautiful.
See me just as I see you . . . Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. With a history of violence and bad decisions behind him and the threat of prison dogging his every step, he's determined to walk a straight line. To Colin, that means applying himself single-mindedly toward his teaching degree and avoiding everything that proved destructive in his earlier life. Reminding himself daily of his hard-earned lessons, the last thing he is looking for is a serious relationship. Maria Sanchez, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants, is the picture of conventional success. With a degree from Duke Law School and a job at a prestigious firm in Wilmington, she is a dark-haired beauty with a seemingly flawless professional track record. And yet Maria has a traumatic history of her own, one that compelled her to return to her hometown and left her questioning so much of what she once believed. A chance encounter on a rain-swept road will alter the course of both Colin and Maria's lives, challenging deeply held assumptions about each other and ultimately, themselves. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like . . . until menacing reminders of events in Maria's past begin to surface. Rich in emotion and fueled with suspense, SEE ME reminds us that love is sometimes forged in the crises that threaten to shatter us . . . and that those who see us for who we truly are may not always be the ones easiest to recognize.
Lord, Please Don't Let Her See Me Cry is a true story of child abuse so atrocious I have suffered from it for over fifty years, having not only to endure the memory but also being forced to see the scars every time I change my clothes. I only survived because of my faith in God and God's mercy on me. As a child, I promised God that if he would see me through, I would one day pay him back by helping other children in similar situations. I hope this book helps bring the attention of the world to the problem of child abuse so that the abusers may be punished and the abused healed. Please help the children of the world. They are our future.

As one of the many by-products of Moore’s Law, personal computers have, in recent decades, become powerful enough to record real-time eye movements with video-based eye trackers. The decrease in the prices of eye tracking systems (ETSs) has been accelerating since the 1990s, and their use in a variety of scientific domains expanding. ETSs and related applications have shown a lot of promise in recent years, and their widespread and ever-increasing use in mainstream/personal equipment for daily life has transformed them from a novelty into a relatively common tool. This book showcases the state of the art in current eye tracking research by bringing together work from a wide range of application areas. It grew out of the 3rd International Conference on Eye Tracking, Visual Cognition and Emotion (ETVCE 12), held at the Lusophone University, Lisbon, Portugal (October 2012). This book provides an overview of the latest research in a broad range of disciplines for which eye-movement is relevant, and will inspire the intersection of knowledge between these areas. However, this is not a book of Proceedings. Rather, it is an edited, peer-reviewed selection of chapters based on presentations at the conference, and also includes invited chapters by authors who were not able to attend the conference. The efforts of these contributors have resulted in a state-of-art book which will inspire and guide students, lecturers, researchers and developers in eye-tracking research, and stimulate the use of eye-tracking across scientific disciplines.
A thought-provoking collection of 20 narratives by student veterans at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point that aims to undermine media-created stereotypes and to help bridge the gap that divides them from the American people they fought to protect. With thoughtfulness, humor, and honesty, they relive and relate their worst memories, illustrate shared experiences, explain to us the fulfillment of combat, and show us what going to war really entails. For veterans, these voices will ring familiar. For civilians, the stories open a view into a world few ever see and, in the process, affirm our common humanity.
Four-year-old Carolyn Christian was playing outside her home in Alabama when she found herself standing in front of an old door. Curious, Carolyn looked through the keyhole and saw something she would remember for the rest of her life. It was at that moment that she learned that God was watching out for her—always. Carolyn chronicles her life from age two to present, telling the story of how she found God even through her most challenging moments. Carolyn shares not only poignant, but also humorous anecdotes that detail unforgettable moments from her childhood like the time she pretended to be tipsy from drinking the communion wine at church and the evening she mashed potatoes without draining the water, ending up with potato juice instead. As Carolyn discloses the confusion she felt as a young girl when she was sexually molested by a family friend, she also shares an inspirational message that God provided her with strength, even during her darkest hours. By offering an honest and self-disclosing glimpse into her life story, Carolyn inspires women everywhere to trust that God will always live in their hearts.
