Writing chapter two of my dissertation made me reflect on this wonderfully, broken field that I work in, each and every day.
They say when God gives you an opportunity, you have to go for it like there's no tomorrow. This can be a job, money, salvation, and everything in between. Yet, when God placed my wife in my life, I had no choice but to shoot my shot. Today (and really every day since I met … Continue reading Challenge Me: Day #8
Tupac Amaru Shakur...Hip-hop legend...California representative (although he was born and lived in New York City)...
