Firm grip on the message of love and protection; prosperity and family. Have we truly lost our way? Allowed our … Continue reading The Journey Continues
Just taking a quick moment to vent... So tired of the gunshots, especially when I know that the guns are not manufactured in the city - and aimed at one another; when I know the profitable makers don't appear to give a damn; when the media images pumped into the minds of many are purposefully … Continue reading Gunshots!
