U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The attacks on September 11th, 2001, reminded Americans that our country is not immune to the threat of terror. But, in the days that followed, the American people proved that a united nation is stronger than a divided one.

May we never forget their lives nor the renewed spirit of patriotism and unity that helped rebuild this great country to become stronger than ever.

Whitney Johns: Unmet Expectations, Unfulfilled Desires

 

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – In the past year, I graduated from college with a four-year bachelor’s degree, moved to a new city, and began applying for jobs.

Yes, this sounds incredibly pessimistic. But let’s be honest here – anyone over the age of 22 has experienced this in some way. And if you haven’t experienced this in the business world, you still know the feeling. It is the heartache of unmet expectations, the sorrow of unfulfilled desires.
