What motivates you to write?
My education was in political science on the way to law school but I got sidetracked. I retain my love for public affairs and writing in general. I write on current events and personal experiences and invite responses. I want to encourage people to engage in polite, civil discourse and to allow disagreement on the way to understanding. I am especially interested in the intersection of faith and government.
I love friends whether they agree with me or not.
I write because not to do it would cause my head to explode.
