Protesting: Love not War

For the last week or so, ever since the event in Charlottesville, I've been thinking about life and the most important relationships in my life (family, girlfriend, friends, co-workers, people I know at church).

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

This morning while resting in my bed, and writing a paper on the external business environment of a company, I also scanned Facebook to find a recent story on the Huffington Post that fascinated me. News media and many within the LGBT community are teaming up against Kim Burrell by calling her "homophobic", because someone... Continue Reading →
