A 'Where's Waldo?' presidency

WASHINGTON -- For a man who won office talking about change we can believe in, Barack Obama can be a strangely passive president. There are a startling number of occasions in which the president has been missing in action -- unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment. He is, too often, more reactive than inspirational, more cautious than forceful.

How long is a long good-bye?

Lately and more than once, that irritating detail known as "time" has saturated my mind in an especially tense and poignant manner. Tick –tock. Tick-tock. Shut off that annoying sound. Can time be disguised as sound? It can be for some. Perhaps it's the sound of an alarm clock at first light; or the sound of a bell when the school day is complete; or the sound of a buzzer when the game is over; or the sound of a flat line at the end of a life. Time can relate to sound, whether it's the sound we ...

A message for today’s youth, purity is a beautiful quality

Why is purity no longer valued? I've often asked myself this question, especially through my high school years. Now, purity has become an "old-fashioned" way of living; a virtue that is ridiculed and scoffed at. Just last semester I was laughed at for wearing my purity ring, a symbol that says I will wait for marriage.
