Similar and Different

Have you ever met someone, thought how similar you were, but then discovered some glaringly different beliefs? It can be most unsettling.

Light a Candle

How tired are you of the negativity, outright lies and blatant disregard for common sense we hear from the media? I know. Silly question.
