People say America is more than just a nation, it is an idea. That idea took shape centuries ago at that table covered (in all likelihood) with fowl, corn, mussels and clams. It was that bridge between two cultures that has been a part of our American psyche and led to the birth of our nation.

After being persecuted by those who feared him, Jesus, a refugee himself, leaves us with a final commandment: "Love one another as I have loved you." Is closing our borders to thousands of refugees an expression of His love?

Spiritual seekers should not be infantile, fuzzy-brained, naive observers merely standing on the sidelines with nothing to contribute but loving hashtags while the world community faces an unprecedented crisis. Quite the opposite, we should be major factors in healing the crisis.

Last night there was a knock on my door. As first, it startled me. I guess I'm as jumpy as everyone else right now. But it's my own door; of course I'm answering. When I feel fearful, I remind myself that I was a Sgt. in the U.S. Marine Corps. Plus I live in a secured building.

In regular society, your neighbor does not have the right to any part of your backyard and no man is allowed to purposely block your path to a fire escape in a crowded place. Somehow during air travel all of these agreed upon laws and social customs are completely ignored.

Welcome to the Warlord Era, America

Dan Carol

Let's quit beating around the bush: Warlords are ruining America -- and not just as measured by the Gross Domestic Product and nerdy stuff like that. Warlords are making America less fun. Less can-do. Less a place where people can agree to give a little to get a little.

Instead, a model that embodies what children need is the nineteenth-century American frontier father.
