#45 Is Who He Is – Ain’t No Changing Him!

I personally do not like #45. He’s a racist. I can’t even say his name nor acknowledge he’s the President of the United States. But, he is. And as a Christian, I have decided to pray for him. This is not easy for me at all.  I'm going to do my best to be authentic… Continue reading #45 Is Who He Is – Ain’t No Changing Him!

Why I’m Not Excited about tonight’s State of the Union

This will be a very short post.  I am not excited about President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address tonight because I will have to admit it is his last one and his term is almost over.  I know it is 2016 and that a presidential election is in full effect, but that doesn’t… Continue reading Why I’m Not Excited about tonight’s State of the Union

A letter to my son…

Dear Maxwell: My heart hurts. It aches with the agony of knowing that no matter how much I try, your life could end needlessly just based on the color of your skin.  The complexion of your skin in this day and time labels you as a threat.  It places an unwarranted target on your back… Continue reading A letter to my son…
