GET YOUR PASSPORTS!
Wow... last night on the local 6:00 PM news, there was an
important story run about a change in US government passport
and travel regulations.
The report urged that you get a passport before a
January 8, 2007 Deadline.
The strange thing about it is that just a few days ago, I sensed
that one of the main jobs for LIFT-OFF in the next season
is going to be URGING young people to get their passports.
And my desire is for us to begin providing a way to make it easy for
first-timers to sign-up. Well, I guess our government is going to
assist us in spurring us all on... young and old to do just that.
Here is a memo from the State Dept:
"Under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)
On January 8, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document."
Time to go get Ellie and Tabitha signed up!
