PROGRAM GIVES RETURNING VETS FREE COMPUTER SKILLS TRAINING

ABBY: Please help me alert your readers about an important 
program launched by companies in the information technology 
(IT) industry to educate, train, certify and provide job
placement assistance for returning veterans. Military who 
successfully complete the Creating Futures program will 
have the knowledge and skill level they need to start a 
rewarding career in IT.

Creating Futures is free for all participants. The cost 
is covered by organizational sponsors such as HP, Xerox
 and Ricoh.

The Creating Futures program is tailored to help individuals 
with various levels of skill. Individuals who have honed 
their computer skills in the military will be taught how 
to transfer those skills to civilian life, and those who 
are new to IT will be taught the basic skills they need 
to pursue a career in information technology.

Returning veterans, people with disabilities, youth-at-
risk and dislocated workers interested in participating 
in the program should visit http://www.creatingfutures.us 
for information on how to participate. 
-- JOHN VENATOR, COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION

JOHN: Thank you for bringing this to the attention of my 
readers. I'm sure many individuals in each of the 
categories you mentioned will be interested in learning 
more about the Creating Futures program.

Readers, as workers in the baby boom generation begin 
retiring, they will leave a significant gap in the talent 
pool of the technology industry. The Bureau of Labor 
Statistics projects that there will be 600,000 more jobs
than available employees in the IT industry by 2012. This 
could be opportunity knocking, so please spread the word.

ABBY: I have been fortunate in most areas of my life. I 
have a loving husband, a beautiful apartment, and will 
graduate from law school in a few months. My problem is my 
parents are indifferent about anything I have achieved in 
my life. They refuse to visit our home or acknowledge my
milestones -- like high school or college graduations and 
my wedding.

What have I done wrong to make them so ashamed of me? And 
how can I make them love me and show some pride in their 
eldest daughter? 
-- UPSET DOWN SOUTH

UPSET: You have accomplished much in your young life. That
your parents are unable -- or unwilling -- to give you 
the acknowledgment you crave is more a reflection on them 
than it is on you. Not knowing them, I can't say what 
their reason is.

However, you are no longer a child. Rather than continue 
blaming yourself, it's time to take a long, hard look at 
THEM and ask yourself what kind of people would treat 
their firstborn child the way you have been treated. 
Then draw your own conclusions and go on with your life. 

You can't get blood from a stone, and you can't force 
loveless people to love you. But you can stop beating 
yourself up for not being able to "please" them and go 
on to live a happy and useful life, and that's what I'm 
advising you to do.
