a true story

A family of four used the recent Spring break to visit with loved ones in Long Island. As part of the trip mom and dad decided to take their eight-year-old daughter and five year-old-son into the Big Apple. They stopped at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Climbing the stairs the children gazed in awe at the gothic […]

Remembering Eddie Robinson

The passing of legendary Grambling State coach, Eddie Robinson, causes a little embarrassment for this writer.
