Hello, my fellow WOE Friends!
I hope you all had a safe holiday weekend. I am a little behind today because Jennifer and I went to Orlando for her birthday weekend. We had a great time! I will be posting pictures and comments from Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and other places on Peter's Pic's, shortly (by 3 p.m.).
The WOE Short Story Drugs can Kill, was read by many. But I have much bigger news to share! First, let me give you an update on how Beverly and Pam are doing after three weeks.
Three weeks have passed, and Dave was finally released from the hospital. Pam stayed away from drugs, started doing better in school, and she and Beverly became best friends again.
Beverly started following through on her promise to make sure to warn others of the dangers of drugs.
She knew of a few other girls that were smoking dope after school and their parents didn’t know. She made it her business to warn their parents and devised a way for teens to let their parents know when they needed help.
She enlisted the help of Pam, myself, and Sally, my daughter, to help other teens avoid what happened to Dan and what Pam and Beverly had to endure. Their work is now online on the WOE website at
I genuinely believe the new page, WOE Cares, and it's Care Cards can be very beneficial to many teens, as long as parents or a parent is willing to help. The WOE Cares Page will be getting information on drugs and suicide within a few weeks. Keep checking back or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Peter's Blog when updates become available.
I want to thank Beverly and Pam, not on;y for their story, but their desire to help others. Thanks also to my daughter Sally, for her help in all of this.
Water, water everywhere. Yes, if you love water, you will absolutely LOVE the WOE Complex. Two Sections, including the Center, will be dedicated to water. Included will be the world's largest indoor water park, with four themed sections; A tropical rain forest you can canoe, paddle boat, or Kayak through; A deep, artificial reef lagoon for snorkeling and scuba diving; a one mile long lazy river; a massive wave pool with beach and plenty of lounge chairs and free cabanas; highly themed water attractions, and much more!
Here is what will make you fall in love with the new water sections; No waiting in long lines for slides. Reservations will be required, and you will start in one of the four themed areas at a specific time. Once the time allotment for that themed section is up, you will be given a 30-minute break, then start the next themed section with your group. You and your entire group will do this for the following two sections. All combined, you will spend about six hours completing the four themed areas.
You'll be able to enjoy other aquatic activities before or after your six-hour adventure, depending on your starting time. Only so many guests will be allowed per day, with the water Sections being open for twelve hours daily (10 a.m. - 10 p.m.).
Near the end of the year, the names and specifics of all the attractions will be announced.
Hope you're getting as excited as I am!
There is no new WOE Short Story today (sorry). But a new one will be available this Friday. Because it's the season of Lent, I would suggest two quick short stories that have to do with money and helping others. They are The Old Man and The Coin. They are in the WOE Short Story section of the website.
I do hope you have a great week!
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
