The Choice Constantly Before Us

The Choice Constantly Before Us In the tumultuous world of Resident Rump, I respectfully offer the following thoughts and observations for your consideration. Hostility comes easy.

“Courage Doesn’t Always Roar”

“Courage Doesn’t Always Roar”   This poem is a follow-up to one I sent to Sidney Crosby, Captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, before the start of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
