I go by the handle twilson117. The 117 is to honor my late son who played both High School and Club Soccer a sport he loved.

Critical Race Theory: A Distraction!

These renegades were on the path of forming the perfect union for themselves.

Piers Morgan Needs To Shut Up About Simone Biles!

Everyone wanted to see Biles compete in this Olympics. Wanting to be in that moment of awe, watching her flip through the air as if gravity had no hold on her.

See Me, for I Too Am Made In God’s Image!

For some strange reason, police invoke some unwritten rule whenever they encounter a Black man or Woman. The circumstance of the encounter is immaterial. It is as if those who are Black, Brown are instantly dismissed as less-than. Or what I call negation of the concept of being created in the image of God.

The Commission On The Insurrection Must Take Place

For the country to move forward, this commission is a must. If McConnell and Johnson get their way and hamstring it, they will be responsible for what will inevitably follow, a new form of Jim Crow, and that cannot be allowed.
