Welcome to my new blog “Keep your Head on Straight.” Are you tired of all the negative news that consumes us 24/7?  Are you tired of the constant politics? Are you tired of all the divisiveness that seems to define us these days? Are you tired of hearing what’s wrong with America?  I sure am. But alas, have no fear. Through this blog, I want to talk about ways to bring us together and find peace in these trying times. I’d like to think of this blog as a self-improvement forum for your mind. Let’s get rid of the needless stress brought on by what we read about, listen to and watch on a daily basis that is bringing us down and focus on “The Good in America.”  I’m new to blogging so there is a lot to learn but I’m looking forward to an uplifting exchange of ideas and suggestions on how we can deal with all of this turmoil!  Later, I will tell you a little about myself.  Till then…

  1. I’m very concerned Steve where this country is heading.. I’m worried what we’ll happen to my grandchildren and what kind of country they well live in. Well there be a civil war in this country??


    1. Hi Debbie,
      With all the negative news we are fed all day no wonder you feel concerned. The country is strong. Think about this way….
      We survived, a Civil War in which hundreds of thousands of Americans were killed. We survived World War I and the stock market crash of the 1920s. We survived the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. We survived World War II. We survived the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. And guess what? We are still here. I don’t suggest burying your head in the sand or not paying attention to what’s going on but give yourself a break from all the negative news. Have faith we have been through worse!
