I am the eighth child in a family of 10. My father retired from the army after almost 20 years of service. My family has always attended church.

    When opposing forces killed many lives in his name Deo’s God chose to look the other direction, when he could have done something, if he is what everyone believes him to be. Which begs the question – why do some live and others perish? Deo asked himself the same thing.

Deo has a large amount of faith put into God despite what he has gone through.…

    There has been no research on the benefit of a single-sex education later in life. “No one knows enough about who it is good for and who it is not good for,” says Fred A. Mael, a researcher at the American Institute for Research. So to say single-sex education can benefit a child later in life is false, there is no research on how adults who attended single-sex courses fared after school. (White,…

    This was something that I also experienced a lot throughout high school, upon looking for a new church I found that a lot of the other church goers looked down upon myself and my family for having skipped out on years of attending church and for not knowing the Bible cover to cover. This sentiment towards my religion has drastically shaped how I view my personal faith. For years, I internally fought for my belief in God and often times momentarily lost.
