United States officials accused Russia of the bombing the area to help Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but Russia has denied the accusations.

Just Sayin’ – On Sabbath
The idea of a Sabbath, a day of rest, is often lost in our modern culture of fast food, packed schedules, interstates and roundabouts. Even time spent alone is filled with music and the soft hum of the television. Silence hangs in empty rooms like summer heat, stifling and noticeable.
Whenever I think of Sabbath, I am reminded of William Wordsworth’s poem “The World Is Too Much with Us.” Wordsworth writes “we have given our hearts away” by “getting and spending” and in doing so ...

A New Way to Read Stories
The art of storytelling has been an integral part of culture and the human race since the dawn of time. It is a way for people to connect with other people and places that they may not otherwise experience. Getting lost in a story helps people cope with the stresses of life by allowing them to slip from reality if only for a couple of hours.
However, with the explosion of social media and the Internet, the print industry was forced to adapt. People were no longer satisfied with simply ...

SB 1146: The Battle for Religious Freedom
Legislators in California tried to pass a bill earlier this year that, in short, would have eliminated California students’ federal funding for attending religious universities that are exempt from certain discrimination laws.

A Child of God First, a Paralympian Second
Cedarville University freshman Grace Norman won the gold medal in the triathlon when the event debuted at the Rio Paralympics in September. Then she won a bronze medal in the 400 meters.
Norman was born without her left foot due to a condition called amniotic bands. Amniotic bands are fibrous string-like bands that restrict blood flow and can cause in vitro amputations. In Norman’s case, the bands constricted more as she grew, causing her to lose her foot. It was a shock to her parents ...
