Anti-Cop Rhetoric and the Dallas Police Assassinations

The assassination of five Dallas law enforcement officers should shock and disgust us all. No society can be safe, no rights can be assured and no justice can be found in any place where police officers are intentionally targeted for murder.  

Sadly, this vicious attack comes on the heels of yet another viral video of a police shooting. Despite that fact that they have no ...

Obituary: Jeffrey Hoens of Westfield

Today my family and I must face the reality that our son Jeffrey Peter Hoens’s physical presence will no longer be with us. He had a “quirky” personality. He was our most creative child. He would go up to people and ask them “do you want to be friends?” When he was 2 years old he walked on the ice in the middle of a NJ Devil’s practice at Cody arena and ...

Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Into the toilet.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.

The Mommy's Review - Last Chance for Neverland

Finding Neverland tells the story of Scottish writer J. M. Barrie's inspiration for Peter Pan. A successful but now ...

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...
