I promise you that embracing change is worth the sacrifice.   Java and I have been in a long-term relationship ever since I could talk. Ok. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but I have an obsession with coffee. Yes. I admit it. Coffee shops are my kryptonite. I try to evade the sweet scent of
  Remembering Parkland is more than just taking a moment of silence. It’s understanding that all of Generation Z has been impacted by high school shootings.   Too many Christians are standing up for their rights and turning a blind eye to the struggle that every high schooler faces.
