We face hard choices now. Later, those same hard choices will be harder. How many of us are paying attention? We just held a primary election and only 23-25% voted…. Too busy? Here in the USA, we’ve got some truly serious challenges from our southern border under assault and the cry “They’re children, we must […]
Perhaps you have heard something about illegal children crossing our southern border? More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors and 39,000 women with children have been apprehended on the southern border this year. How to handle this surge?
