My Thoughts This Morning [Actors, Athletes & Politicians]

I can easily compare actors and athletes to politicians. Quite often, people voice their disappointments with a particular professional athlete or movie star. This tends to happen even more around election time.

I believe that everyone has something to turn to during those times of pain and crisis. Possibly a … Continue reading Love Never Lost

Reflection of Self
