Christ or State?

How does a Christian fit into a political system?   This must be a question I have asked myself a thousand times over. I used to consider myself pretty apolitical. I honestly tried my best to ignore politics and not care. But then one day, something funny happened:   I learned morals.   I remember […]

The Bill of Rights Explained Part: 1

  It is hard with the grand disagreement between liberals and conservatives to see the neutralism and grand benefits of the American government and justice system. In 1607, when America was colonized, those that left their homes needed true freedom. Many mistake the definition of freedom with “the right to do anything you want” while […]

Fight for $7.25

“Wouldn’t everyone like to be paid higher minimum wage?” I think to myself as a poor college student. It is no secret that Democrats have been attempting to raise the minimum wage for several years now. Most clamoring for a $15 federal minimum. And while I won’t lie, that sounds incredibly nice: Is that really […]

Most people have probably seen something similar: It offered physical, mental and emotional support to those who feel isolated, especially for mental health reasons. It was a plea […]

EMPOWERING WOMEN IN AGRI-BUSINESS THROUGH MOBILE TECHNOLOGY

In Kenya, as well as many other African countries, agri-business is a sector that drives the economy. Further to this, it has been shown that women in the rural areas depend on this as a source of livelihood.

“In Loco Parentis”

A common question that I get regarding parenting within the criminal justice system is “What are you going to do when/if she gets in trouble with the law?” Every single parent struggles with the thought of how they would react if their child were caught up in something illegal. It is every parent’s first instinct […]

For many girls, being voted homecoming queen would be the highlight of their senior year, but when Mississippi high school senior Kaylee Foster got the crown, her night was just getting started.
