The real America

I believe it to be a reasonable assumption that lately in our country there has been a state of division, if you will.

If we only follow the sensationalism on social media or in the news, we will begin to buy into the concept America is ...

If you ask a class of school children, "Where does racism begin?" They'll tell you, "At home, parents, family, the neighborhood, the playground." Out of the mouths of babes! Are we hard-wired to only be concerned about our own ...
