His dream is to one day work with relief groups and medical missionaries all around the world, before retiring to write a good book.

Thoughts

“I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books.” -C.S. Lewis

“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” – Saint Augustine

“People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.” – Mother Teresa

Price of Knowledge

We live in a free society, all things considered. Americans have it pretty good when it comes to academic learning, quality healthcare, and technological advancement. One of the greatest inventions of our time is the Internet. We’re living in a day and age where the entire collective knowledge of humanity lies at our fingertips. No […]

Old Glory

June 14th is Flag Day. When Americans are supposed to have a solemn reverence for the colors of our nation. In a day where some people resort to burning or stomping on Old Glory for the sake of protest, I think the story of the flag and what it means is more important than ever. […]

I Got The Flu in a Hostel

I am currently in Lima, Peru. And, as I knew was inevitable when I first travelled to another country, I have been incredibly sick the past week or so. We decided we would travel to Huarez, a smaller town that is about 10 hours north of Lima into the mountains for a few days. High […]

Incoherently Pro-Choice (Part 2)

In the first part of this article I explained some of the logical inconsistencies with the statement “I am politically pro-choice but religiously pro-life”. Now I want to shift attention to some of the theological problems with this statement from a Christian perspective.   Theology of the Soul.   Tune goes on to explain, “As […]

Incoherently Pro-Choice (Part 1)

An article recently popped up on my Facebook feed that caused me to reexamine my own biases. Someone who goes to the same school I attend posted an article titled “You Can Be Pro-Choice Politically And Be A Pro-Life Advocate In Your Community”. While in theory I was aware that people who are religious are […]

Catholic Teaching

United in Christ

Every year for Easter, my school sends a group of students to Washington, D.C. for an Easter sunrise service at the Lincoln Memorial. Every year we leave late Saturday night, arrive at the Memorial and stay up all night setting up chairs and equipment for the service at 6:30. Its absolutely exhausting but also one […]

CSW Wrap-Up

Today was the last day of the Conference on the Status of Women here at the UN. And looking back, I think a lot of great discussion was had. People are largely united in the values that we hold. Whether you find yourself more to the political left or political right, there are a few […]

New Eugenics

Iceland has almost entirely eliminated down syndrome from their population. Is this the work of rapidly advancing medicine finding new ways to treat people with down syndrome? Or perhaps it is genetic research that allows for ways to prevent the development of down syndrome in babies? Nope, it is because Iceland aborts almost 100% of […]

Tiffany is a humanitarian activist and actress who has been in several productions, including Netflix shows and Disney and Marvel films. Tiffany was kind enough to sit down with me for a […]

Not Alone

I met a lot of powerful people today. I met actors, ambassadors, diplomats and authors. Many of the people who come together to try and change the world for the better. And almost all of these amazing people came from incredibly difficult situations in which they chose to be better. They made the decision to […]
