I re-posted an article this week about the effects of divorce on children and I want to apologize to ya-all. In an effort to fight the divorce-is-better-than-being-miserable cultural norm, I forgot that my readers are, primarily, Christian women committed to their marriages.

“Hero” is an overused word in our world but I think the school clerk who talked a gunman out of shooting schoolchildren is a true hero who also gave all glory to God.
It’s worth watching.
