Wise Responses

Culture is how we live. It is a choice we are empowered to make; each one having the right to make that choice. Still, it doesn’t seem like the choices are there anymore; in reality, society makes these decisions for us all by default. When you see anyone doing all to exercise his or her…

The End is Known

What was the first thing on your mind this morning as you woke up from sleep? Is it fear or faith, is it despair or hope, is it shame or fame? is it gold or God? Whatever it is that is uppermost on your mind, one thing is sure: you cannot change anything by your…
