Michigan State University Is Facing The Heat!

UNITED STATES—Last week we talked about fallen doctor and former Michigan State University gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. After nearly a week of hearing 150 plus victim impact statements, Nasser was sentenced to 40-175 years in prison. To be honest I would have sentenced the predator to 175 years minimum, but considering the judge was forced to do a minimum...

Diversity In The Academy

UNITED STATES—I’ve been wanting to write about this, since news surfaced about 2 weeks ago about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences inducting a bevy of new members. There was so much uproar at the 2016 Academy Awards because of the lack of diversity in the acting categories. This new membership has a TON of minorities who...

Cash Or Credit?

UNITED STATES—Haven’t we all heard that phrase time and time again: cash or credit? It’s that option that tends to be expected anytime we pay for something in most retail stores or any place where we obtain a service. I had that experience this past weekend, while shopping for some items for an impending vacation. It was almost funny...

What It Takes To Be A Leader

UNITED STATES—We have those in the world who are leaders and we have those in the world who are followers. I have always wondered why so many people are willing to follow a blind leader, when they have the capacity themselves to control their own fate.

But there are also real death stars out in the cosmos that swallow up nearby neighbors. And then there is Donald Trump whose destructive force here on Earth has the capacity to transform formerly well-respected people into unrecognizable versions...

Keep Your Conversation Down

UNITED STATES—This has become a bit of a pet peeve of mine for years, and I know I’m not the only person. Why is it when people have a conversation on their cell phone, blue tooth or mobile device they have this need to be louder than normal? You could be at the bank, the post office, a restaurant,...

Homelessness In America

UNITED STATES—There is a huge epidemic inAmericaright now, the number of homeless people on the streets continues to grow.  It hurts my soul to see a person, particularly children who have no place to sleep at night.  In a country where we have some of the wealthiest people in the world, we should take more of an initiative to...

School Threats Not Funny!

UNITED STATES—In the midst of the March for Our Lives rallies all over the nation by students aiming for change when it comes to gun laws in the country, we need to have a discussion about the issue of gun threats being made across the nation in recent months. I had a family member inform me that over 20,...
