Mother’s Day: Phlunte Riddle candidate for State Senate

I wanted to take a quick break from knocking on doors to wish all the moms out there Happy Mother’s Day for tomorrow. Even after passing, my mother continues to be an inspiration to me.

Jean Youn: Happy Mother’s Day!

Have you ever seen broken branches on a gusty day? And then, have you seen a bird nest hanging on that branch? Yes, that’s really amazing. Though branches may be broken by strong wind, bird nests won’t be broken. However, every nest is not always like that. If a nest is built on a windy day, it won’t be broken easily because it is strong. But more importantly, maternal love to protect young birds must be the foundation of a strong... Read More →
