Pennsylvania State Treasurer R. Budd Dwyer shot himself to death at a live, televised press conference. He had recently been convicted of accepting a bribe and was about to be sentenced to prison. This was all I knew about the man for quite a while. But after viewing a graphic...

I have recently watched a documentary on Netflix called Absent. It is about the affect of absent fathers on children and adults. This film will absolutely break you heart, however, I think it is a must see for every to better understand the human heart and those around us.
'give me a child until he is seven and i will give you the man' is the idea behind this series.

I have been watching:
Hungry For Change
