          This is a very recent story of an angry man named Joseph Stack (age 53). This story is too interesting and upsetting for me and I just have to post about it. You can get the full story about him here at this link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_plane_crash_texas

          I write about him because he was a man like a lot of us, filled with a lot of anger and a feeling of hopelessness. In fact, he was so tired of life that he flew his single-engine Piper Cherokee into an International Revenue Service (IRS) building. It was a building that housed an IRS office and about 200 IRS employees.

I Need You To Love Me. October 17, 2009

This is a song by Barlow Girl that has really been touching my heart for a long time now. Music does such a great job of reaching into your soul and spilling your guts out when you do not have the words yourself, at times.
This is one of those songs for me that I think a lot of us can relate to.

Is It Really Fair-Trade? June 6, 2009

I know that this is a really important issue for many people and the truth of the pictures of what some Africans go through is horrific. Trafficking and Slave Labor have become major issues that have been on the rise for a long time now and many people, organizations, and churches have made it a resposibility and priority of theirs to raise awareness of these major issues in our lifetime. I personally am one of those people who will actively speak against slavery and will do my best to raise awareness, but my purpose here is to challenge what we’ve been thinking about it lately.

Once Upon A Mattress… March 21, 2009

So I saw a play today at GCC called “Once Upon a Mattress”. I went with Eva and two of her friends from school, they are really great girls and I enjoyed their company. It was actually a musical and it was pretty funny. It was like one of those fairytale stories of princes and princesses and the evil lady which was the Queen. The Queen would make it really difficult for the prince (her son) to find a princess that was “princess” enough to marry. Unless the prince got married, the whole land of people could not marry. So everyone was obviously very eager to find a princess for the prince and finally, obviously it all works out in the end and it is “Happily Ever After”.

So I was just wondering what you all think of this concept of “Happily Ever After”? I just wanted to hear some opinions…because I feel as if this world brings a lot of sorrow and trouble; it seems pretty difficult to have a happy ending. What is love all about anyways? I like what someone said once that love is not about a person giving you good feelings, sometimes love doesn’t feel so good. It actually takes a lot of work, energy, effort, and tears. Are we a generation that is fooled to believe that if a person is not perfect and doesn’t always make you feel good, then they aren’t the person who you should be with? (more…)
