Lift every voice [again] and…?

It's time for a re-post. From Saturday, January 21, 2017 to early Monday, January 23, 2017 a storm system with about 5 waves of severe weather ravaged the Deep South. In Albany we experienced another set of, equally destructive, yet totally different, storms. Even more citizens are left with nothing, and some lost the most precious gift of all: their lives.

Disagreement *Should* Not Presume Disdain

I consider myself to be a pretty calm individual.  It takes a lot to get me angry to the point of getting into a fight with another individual.  In fact, I can probably count on my hands the number of knock-down-drag-out fights I've had in my life.  However, that doesn't mean I have no opinions, … Continue reading Disagreement *Should* Not Presume Disdain
