Letter to Dr. Robert Jeffress

President Donald Trump’s Evangelical Advisor   Words are powerful. Our words change the world. With words, you can seek understanding, foster peace, and pursue measured justice. With your words, you can damn a people to the fires of nuclear hell and stain your hands in their blood. Dr. Robert Jeffress, your words have me questioning whether you follow the God you claim to believe in. Are you a Christian, or are you a wolf covered in the sheep’s clothing of patriotism in the name of protecting your country? Behind the façade, you are encouraging brinkmanship in your president; a...

Our P. M. is Playing It Right!

The differences of  opinion between my older brother and I best characterize the growing philosophical division between Canada and America. Several years ago, my brother applied for a position with a U.S. company. His high-tech skill set and managerial experience, (and his Canadian-ness), made him an extremely attractive prospect, and he was snapped up. For decades, America’s educational system has fallen far short in training sufficient numbers of people for high tech jobs, and American companies have resorted to bringing in foreign workers to fill their needs. Canadians have always been...

America’s Electile Dysfunction

The world watched amazed when Donald Trump pulled off a stunning election upset, defying polls that generally agreed he was not going to win. Everyone thought Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in. After all, she had the support of the larger part of the media, the establishment, the business community… she even had the endorsement of the current President!

Gut It Out, Get Writing

It’s what we push ourselves to do when we really don’t want to do it that refines our sense of self-esteem and makes the real difference in our journey. Take going to the gym: I’ve always disliked it. My father always said, “Son, why don’t you go outside and mow the lawn or play a school sport instead of going to the gym?” I agreed with him. Only later in life did I discover the solid science behind resistance exercise. Combined with a good diet and regular sleep, it’s the fountain of youth! Most people know it, but many won’t do it. God knows I tried. I started and quit so...
