The other night, Karl Dimachki performed on the Australian version of "X Factor." He won't win it, and to be completely honest, I'm surprised the judges voted him on to the next round. But what Dimachki did is one of the bravest things I think I've ever seen anyone do.
Some days, like today, I get feeling down about things. Then I remember people like Felicia, the 47-year-old homeless woman I met last week.
Cooper wrote a blog. He wants to start doing that again. I decided to let him. That said, I assume no responsibility for the following.

Since April, the outbreak has killed 36, but could have become much worse had it not been for the efforts of some groups of Christians in the area.
I’ve recently learned the power words have.
This probably comes as a surprise to many of you. “Only recently? Like, aren’t you a writer?”
