You won’t move forward if you keep letting things from your past bring you down! God forgave you!

Our guest columnist sought power, accepted it eagerly, and chose to return to life as a citizen rather than complete a first term.
Celebrating George Washington’s birthday is an American tradition to honor our first president. Though Presidents’ Day is now the more commonly-used term, and has expanded to include all presidents, the legal term for this federal holiday remains Washington’s Birthday.
We honor President Washington, not because he was flawless; he was not. He was, however, the epitome of self-sacrifice — both as a soldier and a statesman. It was that sacrifice that helped make America what it was destined to become. We honor him because of what he accomplished and the manner in which he approached service to this nation: with a servant’s heart.
