Since the Supreme Court ruled on Roe V. Wade in 1973, people on both sides of the abortion issue have stood up for their beliefs. Recently, in Norfolk, a March for Life event was held. Those who chose to walk the two miles from Norfolk Catholic and back had as much right to demonstrate their…

Not too long ago, in Norfolk, a March for Life took place touching on the matter of pro-life and pro-choice. I’m going to touch base on the rights of the protesters in both that march and just in general.

The March for Life typically takes place in Washington D.C. during the last week of January. This year there were many smaller marches taking place around the country because of the pandemic with one organized in Norfolk. I was fortunate to go on the March and the atmosphere was great. I was…

    Lent is a Christian season of practice, celebrated by some Christians though not all. Christians use the season of Lent to prepare hearts and minds for the mystery of the resurrection, but it is all celebrated differently. I celebrate Lent, though I do not actually give anything up. I am a P…

    Since COVID became a thing, I’ve been joining clubs right and left. There are benefits to joining a club. If you pick the right one, you’ll probably meet people who share your same interests and ideally, you’ll learn about something other than the current coronavirus numbers.

    The perfect British butler serves his employer faithfully and with great dignity, putting aside all his own needs and desires as he fulfills those of his master. Mr. Stevens in “The Remains of the Day” by Kazuo Ishiguro is such a butler, and he has served in that capacity for 30 years. Now, …
