We the People

As I sit here staring at my screen pondering what to blog about this week, the only thing filling my thoughts is the four U.S. Marines and Navy servicemen that were gunned down right here at home. These men were not deployed overseas in a combat zone. They were in the heartland, Chattanooga, TN, unarmed … Continue reading We the People

That's a powerful goal and challenge packed into one short sentence!! Unfortunately it seems some days rushing, hurriedness and business is just a normal way of life.
