Sometimes ghosts cause men to arrest.

The parents chose to take these risks

by dragging their children through deadly conditions

Pro-some lives.

Former Tiger proves his worth.

Every hour that passes, another crime is revealed.

Think of the seeds and bulbs in the dirt.

Flew an 8-year old boy from the Democratic Republic

of Congo to LA.

Let’s spend that money on infrastructure.

Just burst into tears.

Big time players.

Big time teams.

Unable to find fit for Chief of Staff.

Why should we take his word.

This is a daunting task.

I give you permission to buy yourself a present.

She hadn’t eaten or consumed water in days.

Unconscious and leaving her in her own vomit.

A leader, a mentor, a role model.

It is possible to be grateful & ambitious.

Kanye has been tweeting so long.

Time is precious.

I Honestly never thought about facts.

I can be a voice.

Don’t ever give into dehumanizing rhetoric

about caravans and immigrants

God’s got us.
