Should teachers be armed with guns?

The latest shooting has intensified the debate over what tactics to use to protect against imminent danger: whether teachers should carry guns or hide with their students; whether schools should invest in fancy security devices like door jammers or put more resources into crisis teams that could identify and intervene with troubled students.

My Rant on Russia, China, North Korea and Trump- Be Aware!

I won’t waste time venting about the fact that we have the worst excuse for a President in office right now. What I do want to talk about is the troubling fact that both China and Russia have deployed nuclear-capable missiles to the frozen tundra that lies along Russia’s far-eastern border with China.

What does it mean to be “Woke”? This term has seen a resurgence recently and become, in my opinion, quite trendy. What the general public now knows as “Woke”, was at one time referred to as “conscious,” and it’s existed in the collective Black community for a very long time. It seems to be one

How to Attract Abundance from the Universe

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the ability to attract abundance from the Universe. I truly believe that one must be careful about the energy that you put out, because if you know anything about physics, energy rebounds and it can and often does come back to you in ways that you aren’t even
