You know the old adage, “Better to light a candle than curse the darkness”. So true. But I must say that we’ve never seen such darkness in our world. There’s no need to rehearse the crises facing us in terms of pandemics, wars, and natural/environmental disasters. Yet, WOW has just lit a little candle that’s […]

June 20th was “Fathers Day”. I called both my sons to affirm them as great dads and they reciprocated. They’re terrific fathers and (so they say!) so am I. Good stuff. But what about the legions of people out there who don’t have warm feelings about fathers? Abandonment, abuse, neglect, indifference…so many affected by dysfunctional […]

A major gap in American history books is the inclusion of black history. There’s no doubt America wouldn’t be the world leader it is today without the major role played by its African American population. They have prevailed through persecution, misrepresentation, and social stigmatization, yet continue to rise above adversity to contribute magnificently to American […]
