    Art program gives Boston’s homeless a place to create

    BOSTON (AP) — In an elegant church in one of Boston’s most chic shopping districts, homeless people from across the city gather once a week to express themselves in ways not possible when living on the streets.

Howland fell overboard into the Atlantic Ocean, was hauled back aboard, and made it through the first brutal winter in the New World. He married fellow passenger Elizabeth Tilley, lived with her into their 80s, and had 10 children and 88 grandchildren. More Americans can trace their roots to Howland than to any other of the first pilgrims. (Candlewick Press via AP)
