I am a life-long student of literature, history, religion and geo-politics. It is my hope to convert my interests into essays, and that those who read them would find value and inspiration. Our world is full of sad people, people who could do great things if they could get past sadness, depression, and regret. It is my desire to help people see that they can do something great with their life if they are willing to let go of the past. I plan to uphold the high standards represented in this venue and do my best to keep my hubs fresh, informative, and interesting!
