Family: A US Baseline

My third topic of interest on this trip is Family. Get ready, this is likely going to be one of my longest posts. I will try not to ramble, but this is personally, by far, one of my biggest reasons for taking our trip. While America…

Faith: A US Baseline

Let’s talk Faith / Religion.  I’ve always been a person of faith, though over the past few years I’ve become very dis-enchanted by religion. I believe religion has also become a business in the United States. In our hometown of Fishers, Indiana, I would venture to…
