Black Man Reveals Hatred He Faced In College- But NOT For The Reason You’d Think…

George Yancey, a former Yale grad student, wrote a very revealing piece about how “unsafe” he felt as a college student. But, as an African American, he didn’t feel unsafe for the reasons filling our news media about today’s college campuses. And once you hear the reason he felt so much pressure, you just might nod your head in sympathy.

Yancey, who not long ago attended the Ivy League school, recently revealed that the reason he felt unsafe in college was not because he was an African American, but because he is a Christian. “I can confidently say that when I was in graduate school, my identity as a Christian was far more under attack than my identity as a black,” he wrote.

“I was repeatedly informed, ” Yancey said, “that Christians like me were the source of most of the problems in our society, and challenged to leave my Christian identity behind. Like many Christians today, I did not feel safe.”

Yancey, who is now a professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, went to pains to note that as a black man, he is not dismissing the racism that he, himself, has dealt with in his life as a black man, but says that he never felt nearly as much opposition in college for being black as he did being a Christian.

Still, despite the attacks against his deeply held religious beliefs, Professor Yancey insisted that he welcomed the challenges to his faith because, he said, it made him a better Christian.

“At the time it was fairly scary to not feel safe,” Yancey wrote. “But now I am glad that I was not kept safe. As a young Christian in graduate school, I benefited from that lack of safety. Having my ideas and identity as a Christian challenged forced me to rethink some of my previous ideas. Some of those ideas I dropped. Others emerged stronger.”

Yancey said that these challenges made him think more deeply about his faith, and that they strengthened them.

But this, he felt, was exactly the point of college: to have one’s ideas confronted, forcing one to think–and that is something he thinks too many college kids are destroying with their purported campaigns against free speech.

“Those who are attempting to protect themselves from hostile ideas are missing a fantastic opportunity to grow,” Yancey pointedly wrote. “They have an opportunity to engage in the type of introspection that sharpened and strengthened my ideas. It is scary to confront alternate ideas. I get that. But looking at those ideological confrontations from this side of my growth has made me appreciate them in ways I could not have when I first started graduate school.”

Yancey also said that he wishes professors would stop kowtowing to students and their every wish, but instead use the current supposed anti-free speech climate as a teaching tool–as professors should.

“Instead, professors should be challenging students to sharpen their ideas by confronting opposing viewpoints and thinking through lazy assumptions,” Yancey noted. “Indeed, we do our students a disservice when we fail to do so. Cocooning students away from perspectives they don’t agree with is the last thing we should do if we want them to mature into the charitable citizens needed in a multicultural democracy. We need to generate citizens who can tolerate and dialogue with those with whom they disagree instead of seeking safety for their political and social beliefs.”

Professor George Yancey is the author of several books including So Many Christians, So Few Lions, which looks at Christianophobia in the United States, and Compromising Scholarship, a book systematically documenting political and religious bias in academia.

8 Reasons Dealing With Your Past Will Help With Your Future

On Sunday evening, October 25th, I preached on one of the greatest life principles ever discovered that was spoken by the Apostle Paul and inspired by the Holy Ghost in the New Testament book of Philippians. In two familiar verses, the Apostle reveals this life principle.

Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

The Apostle Paul is not just talking about the bad things in his past being forgotten, but the good things as well. In Philippians 3:7, the Apostle writes, “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.” The word Loss in this verse means detriment. In verses 5-6, the Apostle lists seven religious credentials that were now viewed as liabilities.

God wants you and me to understand that we have a limited amount of both life and energy. This sounds simple, but it may be one of the most serious of all life principles. Consider these observations:

1. Everyone and Everything has a history and a destiny!This is true of every individual Christian and every local Church.

2. Each of us have good history and bad history. Your past and my past is called history (His – Story). It is our story – all you and I can do is read it, but we cannot change it.

3. All you can do with your good history and bad history is learn from it and leave it! We must make our history a launching pad for our destiny! Those who cannot let go of their past will never embrace their potential!

4. You cannot live for your history and your destiny! Rejoice over your good history, and reject your bad history. You cannot change the past; all you can do is change the future! You are not limited by your history; you are only limited by your destiny!

5. To reach forth unto your destiny, you must first volitionally, purposefully, and consciously forget those things in the past, even the ones you once counted as gain! You might stop right here and ask the question, “Why is it such a big deal?”

6. Because we only have a limited amount of both life and energy! If I use 40%, 50%, or 60% of my energy to focus on my history, then that exact amount is no longer available to help me reach my destiny.

7. Individual people, marriage partners, and church families that focus on their past or their legacy will rarely reach their potential or their destiny, because you can only use your energy to look back or to reach forth. You cannot do both!

8. How do we deal with our past? Financial obligations – make them right; Emotional hurts – forgive them; Personal accomplishments – thank God for them; Wrongs that have not been made right – make the necessary restitution, apologies, or amends. That is putting your history in proper perspective and reaching forth for your destiny.

You and I had better develop the ability to forgive and move on, or we will stay crippled, conflicted and critical all of our lives. Survival necessitates that we develop the ability to forgive and move on. I don’t just move on because I am nice – I move on because it costs me too much energy to stay angry, and I need my energy to get to where I am trying to go. If I give my history too much energy, I won’t have the energy I need to get to my destiny! How many times have we missed our destiny because we kept putting too much energy into our history? Put the past to bed, and get up and go on today with your life. I don’t have, and neither do you have, the resources to feed both our past and our potential, our history and our destiny! Our life is too short, and our energy is too limited.

Giving Thanks At Thanksgiving…But Not To God

In 1789, America’s first president proclaimed a “day of public thanksgiving and prayer.” George Washington implored the heavens to “pardon our national and other transgressions” and urged the citizenry to practice “true religion and virtue.”

In 1863, Abraham Lincoln urged his countrymen to set aside the last Thursday of November “as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

Subsequent presidents continued this civic-religious tradition. “More than three centuries ago, the Pilgrims, after a year of hardship and peril, humbly and reverently set aside a special day upon which to give thanks to God,” said John F. Kennedy in his first Thanksgiving proclamation. “They paused in their labors to give thanks for the blessings that had been bestowed upon them by Divine Providence.” Quoting the Bible, President Kennedy affirmed: “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord.”

That, ladies and gentlemen, was the old America.

In the New America, we apparently know better. Our culture transformers are eagerly remaking Thanksgiving in their own image. This is especially true on the education front.

I was recently alerted to a Thanksgiving Day lesson at the website, a go-to source for teachers. On the main page is a 60-minute lesson plan titled, “Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving.” “Thanksgiving offers an opportunity to teach young students about early days in the original colonies,” the plan informs us. “Students will discover the purpose and people involved in the first Thanksgiving.” The “learning objectives” are succinct: “At the end of this lesson, students will be able to identify the purpose of the first Thanksgiving as well as several people involved in celebrating it.”

The introduction instructs the teacher: “Call students together. Ask students to think about some of their favorite holidays and what they like to do on these holidays. Tell students that Thanksgiving is coming up. Ask students what some of their favorite Thanksgiving traditions are. Read Thanksgiving Day.”

“Thanksgiving Day” is one of three books recommended in the lesson: “Thanksgiving Day” by Anne Rockwell, “Thanksgiving Is…” by Gail Gibbons, and “The Very First Thanksgiving Day” by Rhonda Greene.

I do not own these books. I went to their pages to read the descriptions. There is no mention of God, though there are bountiful references to Native Americans, various tribes, corn, stuffing, and turkeys. The Creator even gets trumped by cranberry sauce.

The review for one of the recommended books, “The Very First Thanksgiving,” states: “This is a beautifully illustrated picture book for young children about the original Thanksgiving feast.” But there is a “caveat,” says the otherwise sympathetic reviewer: “this book nowhere mentions God, who is after all the reason for this holiday.”

The reviewer underscores the “significant historical fact” that the Pilgrims had fled religious persecution, that their Thanksgiving feast was about giving thanks to God, and that Lincoln enacted Thanksgiving Day for just that reason. Thus, writes the reviewer, “the author’s careful avoidance of this fact is a disappointment. But if you are more on the politically correct side, you will find this book to be a perfect introduction to Thanksgiving for your children.”

Indeed, if you’re on the “politically correct side” of the New America, this is perfect—a book that comprehensively airbrushes God from the historical picture.

The “review and closing” portion of the “Thanksgiving” lesson at concludes with these guidelines for the teacher: “Have students line up to present their Thanksgiving fact and what they are thankful for. Congratulate the students on their hard work. Encourage everyone to dig into the yummy food and enjoy having a Thanksgiving feast together!”

Dig in, kids, without a thought of thanking the Almighty.

I ask my secular-liberal friends: Is it any wonder why so many people are homeschooling their kids? Think about it. You can dislike religion, if you prefer. You can even despise it. But a truly “inclusive” education cannot exclude such essential historical facts. This is historical fraud, forgery, perjury.

I’m reminded of a conversation I recently had with a friend who works in the children’s section at Barnes & Noble. She regularly briefs me on the latest political correctness and rank secularism pervading today’s books offered by “educators.” She was cataloguing the stock of Thanksgiving books.

“How are they?” I asked.

“You don’t want to know,” she groaned.

She found only one book in which thanks was given to God.

“Well, then,” I asked her, “what are they giving thanks to?”

“They’re just thankful,” she said vaguely. “They’re simply thankful.”

“Thankful’ for what?” I replied.

She again emphasized: “They’re just thankful.”

Well, that isn’t Thanksgiving. It never was. Welcome, pilgrim, to the new world.

My Thoughts On The Paris Attacks

Paris, France: Muslim terrorists took the lives of over 120 people. Here are my observations:

I am aghast and flummoxed at the number of Americans who just cannot seem to comprehend the culpability that the U.S. government has in all of this. This only makes sense when one takes into account that the vast majority of Americans only know what the mainstream media tells them. And, without question, our mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda ministry for Washington, D.C. Without a doubt, the controlled major media in America rivals the controlled major media of Hitler’s Germany or Stalin’s Soviet Union.

Make no mistake about it: the wars in the Middle East are Washington’s wars. The refugee crisis is the direct result of Washington’s wars. G.W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and the continued violent attacks by the Obama administration throughout the Middle East–not to mention, the direct intervention of, and supervision by, the CIA, British intelligence, the Israeli Mossad, and the governments of Turkey and Saudi Arabia–created ISIS. Furthermore, these governmental entities have all helped to arm, sustain, equip, supply–and medically care for–ISIS terrorists.

One needs to understand that violent Muslims have been killing other Muslims for centuries. In fact, the vast majority of the people killed by violent Muslims are other Muslims–NOT Christians and Jews. What happened in Paris happens routinely in Syria.

ISIS is composed of mostly radicalized Saudi Arabian Sunni Muslims. The goal is to dispose of President Assad’s government in Syria as a stepping stone to conquering both Syria and Iran, thus turning those Shia Muslim nations into Sunni Muslim nations. The result of which means Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will become the de facto king of the entire Middle East. It would also mean that King Salman (already the richest man in the world) would single-handedly control the oil of the entire Middle East. And as everyone should already know, King Salman is in the harlot’s bed with virtually the entire western banking and petroleum worlds.

In addition, please understand that Washington’s wars have created hundreds of thousands of grieving Muslim mothers who have watched Bush and Obama’s bombers and drones take the lives of their sons and daughters–AND THEY ARE MAD! The families of these deceased grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, and cousins have made ISIS recruitment EASY. These people know that the western alliance is behind these deaths, and they want justice. Tell me we would react differently if the deaths were members of our families.

Neocons and globalists in Washington, D.C., are using the Shia Muslim people as the proverbial straw man to topple the governments in Iran and Syria, because those Shia Muslim nations care absolutely nothing about getting in bed with the international traders who want to further enrich themselves from the profits that can be made in those countries. The only one who is seriously making war against ISIS is Russia’s Vladimir Putin. And his efforts against the Sunni terrorists began but just weeks ago.

The refugee crisis is a tool of globalists to destabilize the West and help usher in a global Police State. Again, the goal is a global economic system. The Federal Reserve has taken the U.S. and European economies to the brink of collapse. The only thing that globalists can do to circumvent this inevitable collapse is create global panic, global war, and a global Police State. A Europe and America invaded with angry Muslims is just the antidote.

Please understand that the vast majority of refugees are NOT terrorists. They are persecuted Muslims and Christians (and others) who are literally fleeing for their lives. But there is no question that CIA-backed Sunni terrorists have infiltrated these refugees.

Ask yourself, why would refugees seeking safety and protection in other countries want to murder hundreds of citizens within those countries? They know this would completely alienate the country against them and only serve to further endanger the lives of their families. The attacks in Paris were NOT committed by refugees; they were committed by CIA-backed, Saudi-backed, Mossad-backed, Turkey-backed, MI6-backed ISIS terrorists.

Even though the majority of refugees are doubtless harmless people who did not want to leave their homes and did so only for their very survival–and with the knowledge that western operatives have created a radical Muslim Frankenstein–and given the fact that our federal government is making no attempt to vet these refugees, it is foolish for states to accept them. Governors are right to refuse. (If the U.S. government was truly behaving in the interests of peace and was not an active participant in creating war and instability in the Middle East–and thus creating the refugee crisis to begin with–it would be a different story.)

In addition, how did those terrorists successfully pull off these coordinated attacks? How did they get fully-automatic rifles and bombs into Paris? These sand people are NOT that sophisticated. They do NOT have those kinds of connections. Do you think you could successfully get a group of people together and smuggle dozens of automatic weapons and explosives into a European country–and then successfully coordinate a large-scale attack in a high-security major downtown city? The only people capable of such a thing are Special Ops military personnel. In other words, ISIS had help, folks–a LOT of help.

Furthermore, I believe the mainstream media and Washington politicians are setting America up for another 9/11-type attack. Following the Paris attacks, CIA director John Brennan wasted no time saying that ISIS was preparing more attacks against the West. He also criticized America’s privacy protections–meaning the Fourth Amendment and similar impediments to government encroachment of our liberties.

See the report:

CIA Chief Criticises Recent Surveillance Rollbacks In Wake Of Paris Attacks

Really, Mr. Brennan? If you are truly concerned about future terrorist attacks in the United States, why are you not using the power of your agency to help secure America’s borders? After 9/11, the U.S. government did NOTHING to secure our borders. And to this day, our borders are an open sieve. And you, Mr. Brennan, helped to create thousands of additional terrorists; you helped arm them, supply them, and sent Special Ops to help train them. And all you can say to the American people is that we must surrender whatever protections against governmental encroachment we have left? Do you take us for fools?

And when this next terrorist attack against the U.S. occurs, Washington politicians and their toadies in the mainstream media–along with thousands of Christian “leaders”–will blame Islam. They won’t give a second thought to who the real war-makers are.

A well-traveled friend from Germany wrote this in a private email: “The propagation that Muslims in general are thriving to take over the world is mostly radical Christian propaganda and paranoia with the clear intent to pursue their own political agenda and capitalize on fears in the general public. For instance, if you travel through Iran today, the general public is very pro west. The majority of the Iranian people seem to regard their religious leaders with great skepticism. Also, just look at the numbers: there are worldwide about 50% more Christians than Muslims. Militarily, Christian countries outnumber Muslims countries in weapons and forces easily by 20 to one–and this is not even assessing the quality of the weapons. The United States alone has more fighter jets than all Muslim countries put together by a wide margin. And most of the Muslims countries are allies of the Christian west.

“The uprising of ISIS is a direct result of Bush’s [and Obama’s] war on terror. Terrorism is always a type of guerrilla warfare. It cannot take over western countries for lack of organizational structure. It rises in an area of power vacuum as a structured opposition is lacking. The goal of terrorism is to initiate fear, to taunt powers and destabilize existing political structures. They succeed if radical groups spread the fear of the Muslim religion. This then destabilizes the political structure in western countries with radical parties rising. Since ISIS, the neo-Nazis have gained popularity in Germany. The attempt of Muslim terrorism is not to take over the USA or Germany. It is to create enough fear and political opposition in these countries that weakens their resolve to interfere on the ground in countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

“Also when thinking of Islam as a religion with world conquering ambitions: there have been major Christian communities all over the Arab world since Islam was founded. Lebanon is mostly Christian. Parts of Turkey, Iraq and Syria are Christian settled and have been for a thousand years or more. The Muslims had centuries to get rid of them but they haven’t. Some of the Christians communities are enclaves totally surrounded by Muslim groups that have peacefully coexisted for hundreds of years. That speaks more for religious tolerance than the reverse.”

I bet the vast majority of readers have never heard nor read about the fact that Christians and Muslims are fighting side-by-side against ISIS in Syria, have you? You haven’t read that NO ONE in the West or in Israel is helping the Assyrian Christian Army in Syria, have you? You haven’t heard that Iran is helping to provide medical assistance and support to the Christians fighting ISIS in Syria, have you? You haven’t heard that Assad’s army in Syria is assisting the Christians in their fight against ISIS, have you? No, you haven’t. The U.S. media and Washington politicians don’t want to tell you about that. It might undermine the anti-Muslim, anti-Iran, anti-Syria propaganda that they have been dishing out 24/7 for the last fourteen years.

See these reports:

Christians, Muslims, Assad Troops Fight As One To Defend Biblical Town From ISIS

Exclusive: Christian Army Fighting ISIS Pleads For U.S. Support: ‘We’re Done’

Note that even though Breitbart should be credited for publishing the above reports, they continue to regurgitate the anti-Assad, anti-Iran propaganda. However, this bias doesn’t change the truth of the efforts of Christians and Muslims fighting together in Syria against ISIS that Breitbart admirably reports. You didn’t hear about this on FOX News, did you?

Then there is this: the first thing the president of France did following the terrorist attacks in Paris was to close the French borders. DUH! I think the fox is already in the henhouse.

Folks, let’s get real: if it wasn’t for Donald Trump, there would not even be a national discussion about America’s illegal immigration problem. However, the one disturbing element to Trump’s rhetoric regarding immigration is his statements that, as president, he would seriously consider closing mosques.

Again, Islam is NOT the problem. We have had mosques in the United States since at least 1929. And there are nearly 3,200 mosques currently in the United States. And none of them has been identified as producing terrorist attacks in America. The terrorists that did participate in the attacks on 9/11 were not even from the United States. They were from SAUDI ARABIA. If we were going to attack a Muslim nation in retaliation for 9/11, why didn’t we attack Saudi Arabia? Come on, folks. Are things not starting to add up?

Either we have freedom of religion for all, or we have it for none. The problem with the rise of Islam in America can only be laid at the doorstep of the Christian Church. If our pastors and churches were doing the job they should be doing of making Christianity relevant to life today (including our political life), the American people would not be losing interest in Christianity; and the spiritual void that other religions (including Islam) are filling would not even exist. THAT problem is NOT an immigration problem or a political problem at all. THAT problem is a spiritual problem. And only our pastors and churches can solve that problem, but they refuse to do it.

Plus, America’s churches are more glorified social clubs than they are anything else. Far, far too many of America’s pastors are more concerned about being politically-correct CEOs or Joel Osteen wannabes than they are about being watchmen and shepherds. It has been a long, long time since a majority of America’s churches were a “pillar and ground of the truth.” (I Tim.3:15) The rise of false religions is merely God’s judgment on the Church for abandoning truth. When truth is abandoned, does it really matter which version of error takes its place? Christians need to look themselves in the mirror and stop blaming the country’s ills on Muslims.

If a president can close mosques, he can close synagogues and churches. Talk about opening Pandora’s Box!

But there is another element to the Paris attacks: remember that France–and most of Europe–is a giant gun-free zone. Think about it: a handful of armed terrorists sent tens of thousands of French males into panic like kitty cats in a thunderstorm. European governments (except for Switzerland) have successfully stolen the manhood from the male citizens of that continent. The Natural instinct of men is to FIGHT for their families, their friends, and their communities. But for more than a half-century, socialist governments have indoctrinated men to believe that they must depend on government to protect their families, friends, and communities. Men are not allowed to defend themselves. They are stripped, not only of the means of self-defense, but of the mindset of self-defense. They are like a thousand Wildebeests running away from a half-dozen lions. And that’s exactly what globalists want to see happen in the United States. And in many respects, it has ALREADY happened in the United States.

For all intents and purposes, many states and cities in America are gun-free zones. Men and women are not allowed to defend themselves. The media constantly bombards the minds of the American people with the philosophy that we must depend on government to defend us. Government personnel are always called “first responders.” They are NOT first responders. Private American citizens at the scene are the first responders. By the time government employees show up, most of the damage is already done.

Had the French government not stripped the French people of their ability to defend themselves–and had the males of Paris not lost the mental awareness and mental toughness necessary to defend themselves–the loss of life in Paris would have been much less.

At about the same time that a disarmed Paris was being turned into a bloodbath, the Greensboro, North Carolina, Police Department was teaming up with Destiny Christian Center to ask residents to sign a “Pledge of Non-Violence” and to turn in their guns. Once again, we find American police agencies and state churches (via their 501c3 non-profit organization status) teaming up to try and disarm the American citizenry. No doubt, the pastor of this so-called church quoted Romans 13 to justify this Hitlerian conduct.

Here is the report:

Greensboro Police Asks Residents To Sign Pledge, Turn In Guns

So, here would be my response if a police agency requested that I ask my fellowship to participate in such an activity (ha ha):

“First, Mr. Police Chief, will your department take a ‘Pledge of Non-Violence’ and turn in its guns?

“Every day, policemen throughout America commit acts of violence including the use of firearms. Let’s assume for a minute that violence was justified in every single instance (which it’s not). Why is it right and proper for a policeman to violently use a firearm in self-defense and not a citizen? Does not the Natural Law of self-defense apply equally to every human being, regardless of profession? Are policemen a privileged class?

“Second, Mr. Police Chief, do you really expect the criminal class in our community to sign a ‘Pledge of Non-Violence’ and turn in their guns?

“It is proven beyond all reasonable doubt (by reasonable people) that a disarmed society only encourages violence. Asking non-violent people to disarm doesn’t discourage violence; it invites it.

“These pledges of non-violence and appeals for citizen disarmament are NOT intended to reduce crime; they are intended to make the populace more dependent on government. It’s not about crime; it’s about control.

“Mr. Police Chief, I respectfully decline your invitation. In fact, I think I will encourage the attendees of my fellowship this Sunday to go out and purchase a firearm. Oh, and I don’t advise that your police department disarm either.”

The Paris attacks, the refugee crisis, ISIS, a world on the verge of global war: it’s all a manipulated contrivance of the globalist elite to eviscerate freedom and usher in Huxley’s “Brave New World,” aka George H.W. Bush’s “New World Order.” Folks, get your eyes off of the Wizard and start looking for the man (men) behind the curtain, because that’s the real enemy.

Sarah Palin Just Said 7 Words About Jesus That Has All Of The Libs Freaking Out

 Sarah Palin believes that protecting the innocent is part and parcel of doing God’s work on Earth. That’s why, on Thursday, she made a bold proclamation about Jesus and guns.

Jesus would fight for our Second Amendment,” was the headline over Palin’s post on her Facebook page.

“Shoot, even the Lord said to take up arms and defend yourself and protect the innocent! We’re expected to take responsibility to defend ourselves and to protect the innocent, certainly not relying on fallible leaders to do it for us,” Palin declared.

“Don’t believe me? Look it up! Luke 22:36. I wrote about it in #sweetfreedom. Proof, Jesus is a proponent of carrying!” she wrote.

Sweet Freedom is a new book of devotionals authored by Palin. During a radio interview about the book, she elaborated on her position.

“Jesus is telling us, take up your arms and defend yourself, don’t wait for somebody else to do. So even an issue like whether the Second Amendment should be defended or not is right there,” she said.

In her Facebook post, she also links to a video mocking President Obama’s gun control policy

“Taking concrete defense measures (ie. arming ourselves) away from the good guys? Yeah… that… we don’t want that. As this hilarious parody says, ‘…it will really suck when only the bad guys have guns,’” Palin posted.

Not everyone agreed with Palin’s position on Jesus.

“He meant to take up spiritual arms in times of troubles not physical swords you complete numpty. I can understand that … I’m a bloody Pagan!” Lissa Mitchell posted on Palin’s Facebook page.

But Palin had far more supporters than detractors.

“Thank you, Sarah, for keeping on keeping on ……….. despite all the darkness you and your family have had to endure! We LOVE you for being such a light in our dark world!” wrote Joanna Johnson Holbrook.
