If we only took the time to breathe and think for a moment, instant communication could be one of our greatest tools. Instead, we’ve allowed it to be our biggest downfall. We’ve allowed it to be the wall that separates us from each other.
In a time where the United States seems to have enemies on every front; Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria, North Korea, and other various Asian and East Asian Countries… Our Fearless Leader is most concerned about copping a squat, bending a knee, and so on and so forth. Mr. Trump is more intent on… Continue reading Gather ’round kids, cop a knee
Have any of you seen the movie Jumanji? Do you remember at the beginning of the movie when Robin Williams’ character first appears out of the game: “What year is it?” I’m starting to feel that way, myself, within this stage of my life I find myself in.
