Until recently, I have wanted to become an officer of the law, and I am a woman. My passion has always been to help people in any way I can. I’ve wanted to become a police officer for a while now, and a huge inspiration behind that drive is my godfather. He’s been an officer for 38 years now....

Imagine a world where the customers were the owners. A world where the profits were distributed to those who shopped there. A world where you had a direct vote on the development of the businesses you patronized, and received a share of the profits at the end of each fiscal year, without the need to...

In the time following President Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress, I have noticed the media remains fixated on the tribute to Navy Seal widow, Carryn Owens, by President Trump.

As a young woman that was born and raised in the South, I was always taught to surround myself with people that respect me and those around me.

As a United State citizen who comes from a military family I have learned many lessons.

As a former coworker of Dave’s, I was amazed at the lengths gone to by this man to utterly trash, in classic passive aggressive style, a man who has always stood out to me as focused,...

Have you ever been in a casual conversation with a friend, family member, colleague or even a random passerby and all of a sudden all chaos breaks loose because you may have potentially proven them wrong? I know in my younger years that being wrong was not an option. After all, I was 15 and I knew...

At this point in President Trump’s presidency, most of us have made up our minds about him. We all have decided to either love or hate him.
