From the Desk

The greatest lesson I have learned in past four years has not come from a textbook, nor has it come from a classroom lecture. Learning how to boost your confidence can only be learned through life’s lessons. It is not always easy to learn. Advertising and TV shows depict that women must be blonde, thin and tan to be attractive. […]

SGA bill produces smoking gun

You could say guns are what brought me to Liberty. As a senior in high school, I interviewed for a prestigious scholarship at a North Carolina school. The interview went well, and I was confident that my pre-rehearsed answers were impressive. That was until the last panel judge asked me my view on gun control. Needless to say, I didn’t […]

A Christmas with no water

The young woman wiped the sweat rolling down her brow, took a deep breath, and began the second leg of her journey.

A new perspective on Christmas

My desire to play Christmas music prior to Thanksgiving increased exponentially the past few weeks since the Lynchburg weather has turned almost frigidly cold — at least according to my Texas body temperature that balks at anything cooler than about 80 degrees.  Although classes had yet to break for Thanksgiving, I still played my Christmas music in the office much […]

Attack has globe playing defense Ever since North Korea fired artillery shells on South Korean land Nov. 23, the world has been placed into the necessary defensive position.

WikiLeaks fiasco embarrasses journalism

WikiLeaks has been the topic of much conversation since the web-based organization began publishing 250,000 confidential U.S. diplomatic documents for the cause of “good journalism” under the leadership of Australian citizen Julian Assange last week. Supporters of Wiki-Leaks are trying to make the act of espionage a matter of free speech. The problem with that argument is that divulging a […]

Grace: A Christmas miracle

I have tried to write this story so many times, I have lost count. Every time words fail me, they seem so inadequate. The English language does not contain words enough to properly describe the Christmas of 2000, it does not even come close. To describe Christmas of 2000, I have to start in June of 1996, the day my […]

From the Desk

I used to think that Barnes and Noble was the best place to drink coffee a read a good book, until last semester. One late night, I discovered Wal-Mart’s book section. Within seconds, a simple title caught my eye — “23 Minutes in Hell.” Thinking the book was fiction, I picked it up. Flipping through, I noticed the author wrote […]
