Is this it?  Is this all life has to offer now?  Many of us have asked this as our world, both our own personal bubble and collective society, is shaken to its core.  While news media outlets, social media and outward signs of expressions from people of all opinions cloud our feeds and freedoms, we are left asking what will become of our lives?  What will become of our country?  While we ask these questions, we find comfort in the fact that our core guiding principles of this country were founded on one thing: a belief that we can have...

I've always found weightlifting as a great parallel to life. Life, like weightlifting, takes consistency and doing things with proper form and full repetitions.

The charcoal was lit. The hot dogs and hamburgers were ready. The pools were open (for the most part) and the heat was on this past weekend. Memorial Day finally arrived and brought with it a freedom to return to some normalcy, as the weather pushed us out of the house with a taste of summer.  This year, this holiday seems to take on a different tone and meaning.
