Becoming a Man

It was seven years ago at least.  Bella kept slamming her bedroom door when she was mad.  I had told her that if she did it again that she would lose her door.  Sure enough, roughly one week later she slammed it.  Quickly and without yelling (or saying anything at...

What Caused Las Vegas

Horrific tragedy, loss of life, terror, and fear.  That is what happened in Las Vegas for sure.  A city was traumatized.  A nation mourned.  Everyone took notice. Why did Stephen Paddock do it?  Did Stephen Paddock do it?  If not him then who?  Regardless of who why? ...
