Peyton Siva Glorifies God
He's all of 5 feet 10 inches tall - short by NCAA Collegiate Basketball standards. But he's got mad hops, as this video will attest. He is the floor general, the starting point guard and co-captain of the University of Louisville Cardinals, a team that has exceeded the expectations of many this season by making to the Final Four of the NCAA basketball tournament (they will face their biggest challenge when they face the #1 ranked overwhelming favorite, the Kentucky Wildcats, tomorrow night). Few will disagree with the assertion that Peyton Siva has been a huge reason why Louisville is on the map as this year's Cinderella story. But what most impresses me about Siva is his real, sincere commitment to Jesus Christ. Please do yourself the favor of reading this great article in the March 28, 2012 edition of the Courier-Journal. He prays with as much heart as he plays on the basketball court. And he's always got an assist for someone in need. God bless Peyton for his on and off court valor.
A.M.E.R.I.C.A.DOT.COM What shall we say that we have learned about
America? At some point in our
educational journey, we have taken courses in civics, government and American
history. We have read the words of her
founding fathers and cited the significant founding documents that
theoretically make America unique among the nations of the world. But if we’re paying attention, what we’re taught about
America doesn’t square with the stark, barren reality of America. So I offer up, for serious consideration,
conversation, contemplation and critical dialogue, the following seven-stanza
free-from verse, “A.M.E.R.I.C.A.DOT.COM”:
have I learned about America? First of
all let me say that I love America and love being an American citizen. And because I love America – or at least the
promise of America – and presumably an American descended from many
generations of my African ancestors who were brought here some 398 years ago
today, born here and enslaved here, I reserve the righ…
Just some thoughts I posted on yet another senseless violence domestic terrorism attack, this time at First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, Texas. #SutherlandSprings #DevinPatrickKelley #domesticterrorism #domesticviolence #guncontrol
Just posting this here for those who are interested in knowing the horrific and disgusting origins of males wearing their pants below the hips and exposing themselves/their underwear.
The Cliffnotes version? Saggin' originated in the worst practices of rape, torture and human degradation by debased slaveholders in the process of "breaking" the resistance of their enslaved males. Wonder why there's so much homoeroticism in military and law enforcement settings - male dominance/patriarchy much?
Guys, be better. Do better. Don't mindlessly follow every trend, be a trendsetter.
