A Mother’s Love

Religion is a formidable subject, probably more so today than ever before. Several wars, The Inquisition, The Crusades, slavery, terrorism, and the ethnic and sectarian conflict in Africa among others, have all been justified through the interpretation or more aptly the misinterpretation of misguided followers of religion.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my birthday. My 6th decade of life has been filled with awe, wonder, astonishment, extreme loss and unbelievable gratitude.
