ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS by Ronald H. Balson It would seem by looking at the best seller lists that we have a glut of legal thrillers on the market. Wit...
My own reflections on gratitude this year were a little different. For the first time, I felt sincerely grateful not just for the many good things in my life, but for the most difficult and painful experiences I have gone through.
Born in bloodshed, Bangladesh seeks a justice long overdue. Regrettably, the very judicial body responsible for delivering that justice instead threatens to further deny it.
