It’s been roughly six months since my last post, and for that I apologize.  During that time my family and I have moved one last time, I am one semester closer to finishing my degree, and I have started a new and much more enjoyable job.  But why has it been so long since I’ve posted?  In part it is because I have been kept very busy with school, but truth be told I’ve been finding it difficult to write about the things happening around the US and around the world.   With school out for the summer and life settling down, it’s time to get back in the swing of things; the world is on fire and there is much to be said about it.
