    What Love Looks Like

    Gandhi Was A Sinner

    Yup. Shocking isn't it? Gandhi was a sinner. You see, he was Hindu. Therefore, could not know Jesus. Without a relationship with Jesus, it seems we are all condemned to eternal damnation as sinners. So, yeah. Score 1 for Monday, because I'm way smarter for having learned...

    Now I Know

    I learned something new today.  I was watching Judge Greg Mathis and he told this woman not to say A-rab, but Arab.  He said the term A-rab, which is how I said it, was considered a racial slur by them.  When you know better, you do better.

    classroom building. A part of me urged to go speak to her. Yet, another part of me fought back. It didn't want me to intrude on her emotional roller coaster. And quite frankly, It was too weak to. However, today I didn't listen to my weak subconscious (the little devil on my...

    and where to hit someone with it. I need a little more practice when using it to block though. But when it comes to swinging it I feel like a boss! Overhand swings are never a thing to do. Mostly because they look bad. Also, while we're hitting someone with it we yell "POLICE...
