America’s Gun Epidemic Needs Some New Solutions

“America’s Gun Epidemic Needs Some More Solutions”

Tahlequah Daily Press, April 17, 2019

In Randy Gibson’s “Try as you Might, You Can’t Legislate Kindness” the NRA Benefactor Patriot argues that no gun regulation will prevent mass murders. He falsely states that the older generation was better principled, and that realistic video games and TV are contributing culprits of mass shootings. Though gun violence to some degree permeates the world, there is no country that experiences terrorist-style acts of mass shootings other than The United States.

Be Sure to Tip Your Mormon Bartender

I was born to parents who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who raised me in the atmosphere of the church. As a child I enjoyed attending services and going to Primary where I learned that I was a child of God, and that he sent his son to save us from sin. I guess that there was something in that message that resonated with me, because 35 years later I am still attending church, and I am raising the next generation to know Christ.

What the NFL can learn from High School

On August 8, 2019 The Model Health Show posted a video clip of a football game from Atlee High School in Virginia. The clip featured Seth Shirey, a senior with cerebral palsy who has always loved football but could never play due to his physical condition. In a heartwarming gesture, both teams agreed to allow him to run the ball for as long as he could. The young man took the ball from the quarterback, and with players from both teams running alongside and cheering for him, he scored an 80-yard touchdown. The score put on the board was real. The opposing team voluntarily gave up six points to make a young man’s dream come true. I have seen similar stories like this many times, and they always come from high school teams.  Continue reading What the NFL can learn from High School

We Are Living in Harry Potter 5

I first read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix over ten years ago, and at the time I thought that it was the worst-written book of the series. To a certain extent, some of my reservations of the book still exist, but overall, I feel as though it has aged very well, and I have a better appreciation for it than when I first read it.
