As people go about living their everyday lives, some forget ‘God’s Grandeur’ as poet Gerald Manley Hopkins points out. Everyone sees life through only his own eyes, not through the beauty of others.

Sure, zoos are fun. You can take the whole family: the wife and kids, Bobby and Sally to have a grand old time looking at wild creatures that came to you from some foreign place.

As we all know, many of us just experienced our last SADD dance ever. Now, I know that these stories about dances may seem so cliche and unoriginal, but everyone’s night was different and I had a great experience.
