My Eyes Have Been Opened

  I have chosen to not speak about the pandemic that has come and taken over the world, like a masked villain whose sole purpose is to cause havoc upon the city.  I have found that it is hard to get away from what’s happening in the world right now.  There are updates constantly on… Continue reading My Eyes Have Been Opened
