Civility, Faith and A Choice


Faith, News

It’s amazing and incredibly sad how divided we have become as a nation. As a country we have for some time been separate from the rest of the world. America was seen as different, as something that everyone (almost) wanted to be a part of. Wars have been started and good men and women dies for […]

9/11 Thirteen Years Later


Memories, News

I was jarred out of sleep by my cell phone ringing on one of the few days I could sleep in. It was my wife calling to tell me to turn on the TV because a plane had crashed into a building in New York. I worked at that time for a software company based […]
