Independence Day

Independence Day is  a day celebrated to commemorate the birth of the United State's independence from England. Today it's synonymous with fireworks and bar-b-cues, friends and family. What are we really celebrating though?   When the declaration of independence was signed over 200 years ago the people of the then colonies drew a line in…

Living with the truth…..

Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a world of people acting respectfully and responsibly; a world where people spoke the truth instead of distorting it?

Tim Tebow and the Broncos….

Tim Tebow and the Broncos season ended last night in Foxboro with a decisive loss.  Tom Brady and the Patriots were unstoppable and played flawlessly and with home field advantage they triumphed.  Congratulations to them and to the eventual Superbowl winners.  I am disappointed  the Broncos didn't go all the way, but so is every other fan whose team…

Happy Birthday Stephen!

Today is my son Stephen's 19th birthday a day I remember as a very special day.  It was the day I gave birth to my little boy for whom I had such great aspirations and dreams.  Life has a funny way of not turning out the way you planned however, as I have not had the luxury of sharing his birthday…
