My thoughts on President Trump’s executive order

My thoughts on President Trump’s executive order

It seems many have forgotten that we are actually fighting a war. We seem to have become so numb to war, forgetting that Americans are currently dying in foreign nations to keep us safe. We are not fighting a war against a particular nation state, with its soldiers who adorn uniforms, or a nation in which a peace treaty can be signed.

CNBC ranked Georgia as the “top state for business” in the country. The film and television industry has boomed with some estimates placing Georgia third in production behind California and New York. Over $1.7 billion was spent on film production in Georgia in 2015 alone. The rapid economic growth the state of Georgia has seen over the past few years seems unstoppable.…Read more
Did Pope Francis Get It Wrong?

Did Pope Francis Get It Wrong?

Pope Francis is the spiritual leader to 1.2 billion Catholics across the globe. He recently made a visit to the U.S. and urged Congress to take action on issues including climate change, the death penalty, immigration and Christian persecution. He is the first Jesuit and Latin American Bishop of Rome and has centered his message on preaching compassion for the poor while asking the church to not focus solely on "issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptives." Pope Frances is one of the most respected and admired men walking…Read more
