Hi friends, I hate racism… My first introduction to it (that I recall), was in the 3rd grade. I remember the kid’s name, though I won’t say it…he may have changed, grown…..in which case he doesn’t need to be bashed….in many ways, I now recognize that he was a victim as well. Anyway, I was … More Nonetheless

It is the hope of the author to help people understand the issues seen from from several other perspectives. Through this understanding, it is the author’s hope that a bridge can be forged that will enable Americans … More That Which Evil Wrought

Anne Frank—one of my most revered historical figures and writers. If Anne Frank could make this statement, I believe we can stretch ourselves to be happy in almost every circumstance…………….and live a more quality life as a result.

Today, I am writing about annoyance…..How often are you annoyed in a day’s span? Many times, I would guess. Does everyone need to know…..maybe. It could be like a dog’s growl, a warning that you are going to blow. Or can you talk yourself down from that ledge? Do you have any self control? I … More Annoyance….
