Letter From Birmingham Jail

Another senseless act of violence: Boston Marathon

Sheila Liaugminas | 16 April 2013

Acts of violence never make sense, no matter how this one turns out to be explained. Every one of these random attacks assaults our sensibilities and rattles whatever semblence of security we still have in our daily lives. We can’t live in fear, so soon after these things happen, we go back to busy life as usual. But with a little more dis-ease. What else can we do?

To really honor Dr. King

Sheila Liaugminas | 22 January 2013

First, respect the fact that he was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Reverend first.


Sheila Reports promises a perspective here that you may not be getting in mainstream media and the politically charged blogosphere. Don’t expect political correctness, because politics doesn’t determine what’s correct. This space is grounded in the natural law and moral order. And it expects civility, goodwill and an openness to truth and reason.
