Following the tragic loss of Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman, almost everyone who is aware of the case has an opinion, and it is those opinions that have taken this story to a level of volatility that could become explosive. Trayvon’s death and the subsequent media swell around this has resulted in emotions on all sides of the war of public opinion being evoked and provoked.

A dangerous game of political chicken is being played in our country with the debt ceiling, and it stands the chance of bringing the further downfall of the American Empire.

I continually look at society to see where and how we need to change to make this a better place. Just as often I look at myself. This past weekend, I witnessed a very disturbing event that some of you may question why it bothered me so much??? Well, it goes like this. My wife and I are part of a condominium association, and we traveled to where our condo is for the annual meeting.
