    An attack on our God-given free will

    During my four years at Malvern, there have been quite a number of monumental changes. The Dean of Students position has changed three times. A theatre giant has passed the reins to a new age. The “Oracle of Carney” (Miss Walsh, for those who don’t know) has retired and comic books have …

    Powerful Words on the Day of Silence

    Six years ago I was sitting at my desk playing cards with some classmates during indoor recess. Two of my other classmates came up to me while we were playing and asked me, in between giggles, if I was straight. In fifth grade, everyone tried to trick each other by …

    War on Religion: A Rebuttal

    Recently, while browsing my school’s online newsletter, I came across an article written by a fellow student about the media’s “War on Religion.” It was well written, very interesting, but I felt it only represented a small portion of what I view to be the reality of the situation. The …

    Super Tuesday

    My last article on the Republican Primary was about the surge Santorum had in February. However, February is a “low key” Primary month for the candidates. There was only one debate and the majority of the contests in February were caucuses. Caucuses draw the political elite and most politically active …

    President Obama in the 2008 election used the argument that John McCain’s tax cuts to the “wealthy” were unfair to middle class Americans, and that tax cuts to any who makes under $250,00 is fair. The Occupy Movement, even though they were a violent protest group that only gained legitimacy …

    Filling our voids

    It is a basic principle of life to overcompensate for what we lack. For instance, those with a bit more in the bank but a bit less in the heart fill their voids with material objects. It’s a very old practice and is still very much around, despite our better …

    Surviving this labyrinth

    People often ask me what the purpose for our existence is. It’s pretty hard to answer a question you yourself don’t know. So, I usually answer with another question. What is the ultimate test life challenges us with? This is more of an opinion question and I actually enjoy hearing …
