LITANY: Americans Need To Hear Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech Again and Again

9:03 PM 04/07/2018

In life, there are times when a lesson must be repeated for understanding, growth and, ultimately, for application. The repetition could be due to an individual's seemingly resistant nature to hearing it -- and their acceptance it upon hearing it.

Many comedians are inclined to pass off their biased views as objective and true when it comes to conservative politicians and conservative viewpoints.

MAN UP, DADS: Fathers Must Intentionally Educate Sons To Respect Girls And Women In The Sexual Assault Era

9:02 PM 01/03/2018

Since the Harvey Weinstein scandal hit the news and blew up in Tinseltown, it feels as if you cannot go a day before the next sexual assault allegations are hitting the airwaves. Sad to say that the shock has somewhat worn off at the hearing of such events taking place at this point because of the seemingly unending nature of the stories and the furiosity at which they are appearing.
