Point of View

The Power Of The Word ‘No’

UNITED STATES—There is one word in my vocabulary that I rarely use. I honestly have the slightest reasoning as to why I don’t use the word more because frankly I should. Perhaps it’s because I’m an emotional person; I like to consider others feelings. But why may you ask? It’s an Aquarian thing; we’re those who do for others...

The Talking Cure

UNITED STATES—How does one handle their emotions without allowing them to explode in their face?  Many theorize discussing how you feel as a suitable outlet for getting things off your chest, but I’m not so certain that is the best solution. Seeing a therapist might allow an individual to sort through the things that are transpiring in their life,...

What If Nature Turned On Us?

UNITED STATES—I had the pleasure of seeing an eye-popping movie this weekend, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” Wow, this movie was indeed an eye-opener for me. It reminded me a bit of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds.” It coincided with that idea of nature turning against mankind because of all of our experiments or inability to realize that...

The Internet Bug

UNITED STATES—The Internet is something that amazes me each day that I think about it. Rewind nearly 25 years ago, and the internet wasn’t even in existence. Now, it’s something that the average American is unable to live without. The scary question is: why? I will admit, I first got a taste of the Internet in the late 90s,...

The Immigration Crisis

UNITED STATES—The debate regarding how to handle immigration in the country is reaching a fever pitch.  President Barack Obama and members of Congress and the Senate are encouraged by citizens to take action.  The epidemic in some states in the Southwest has gotten so dire that illegal immigrants are entering theU.S.by the thousands. The big concern is that many children...

Is Prison The Answer?

UNITED STATES—We live in a world, where when an individual commits a crime they have to pay the price. For many, that price lands them behind bars; but is locking up criminals a suitable resolution for deterring crime? It depends on who you ask. Sending people to prison just opens the floodgates for more criminal behavior to manifest. We are...

The Secret To Success

UNITED STATES—How can one define what it means to be a success? I mean, seriously: think about that question for a second. We live in a world where people love to measure success; but its not something tangible. You can’t really measure success, unless we have a global scale where its defined by. In America, it's known as money. The...

To Sue Or Not To Sue

UNITED STATES—I’m sorry, but it’s almost like I hear about a frivolous lawsuit everyday. I have to stop myself in my tracks and ask, “Really?” Why is our legal system held up with such stupidity? I feel like people file lawsuits whenever the opportunity arises, as it’s a quick way to earn a buck. Not only is it a...

Doing The Right Thing

UNITED STATES—By now, I’m sure most of you have heard of the news involving auto giant General Motors and the debacle with the ignition switch crisis that has resulted in the loss of multiple lives. GM announced on June 30 new details involving their compensation package for those impacted by the ignition switch debacle. An important note to acknowledge is...

Life Lessons

UNITED STATES—There’s a saying in life, “You’re never too old to learn something new.” That concept is something that is resonating with me lately. We live in a world where we become so enthralled, entangled, consumed with our own problems, we never take a small second to examine, “Well, things could be much worse.”  I mean our lives might...
