Promise to make a difference in somebody’s life

I was thinking about my mother on Mother’s Day. She wasn’t rich or famous or highly educated or socially prominent or even particularly sociable. Yet she deeply touched others’ lives. She managed this without making a single grand gesture. She did it just by loving people, and by being kind to them, and by going out of her way for them.

Haggard’s songs offer insight to Trump, anger

When Merle Haggard died, I did what fans do in such times: I broke out his recordings and relistened. I heard something I hadn’t noticed before: Merle prophesied the rise of Donald Trump and the Tea Party. It’s all in his songs. Through the 1960s and then beyond, he showed us a worsening disenfranchisement among the working class, and more particularly, among blue-collar white men.
