In liberal circles, one sometimes hear people mocking Conservative Christians or others driven by faith. Next time you're about to join the mockery, think of this guy--saving lives and facing bombs.
Most of the world has abandoned the civilians being bombed daily in Sudan’s Nuba Mountains. But Dr. Tom Catena saves lives there daily.

This year my win-a-trip journey included a US component, in Baltimore. My winner, Austin Meyer, did this great podcast about the challenges there for a former drug dealer--and a terrific program helping him. Listen!
Dontay Burrell, 21, is a former drug dealer who is trying to earn his high school diploma.

My column on the confederate flag: The larger shame isn't a piece of cloth, but the fact that a black boy is projected at birth to live five years less than a white boy.

For an old hag you got a real filthy mouth. Lol. And what's with the girlie drag quote? I mean really? That's all you have? Let me tell you something you bar maid *um guzzling bitch. Don't you ever and I mean ever have my name fall out you mouth or even reference anything like that to me again. And fascist? There isn't anything fascist about a person, such as myself, who has served there country honorably and deserve to keep my firearms. It's obvious you had NOTHING to say when I brought up Julius Graham. You made that clear. So it is better you say you old sagging ass titties on the other side of that line. See, in the south, we are taught to survive. By any means necessary. It's people like ME who served there country honorably that lets you have freedom and call this place home. So before you TRY and start shit, you better be perfectly clear of who you are talking to and what you are saying. Because the person you are talking to, might be just outside. Just like, I have no earthly idea who you are, you have no idea who I am. I could be looking and your false teeth ass right now. You would never know it. And I am certain that the last thought that you don't want to have run through your mind, is a bullet. So before you go any further and you over load your ass, ask your self one thing. Do I really want my financial records messed up? Do I want to lose my house because I have to file bankruptcy? Do I know for a fact that the person I am bad mouthing cant do that to me and my family? So you really need to stop with the whole shit bag and disgusting fascist thing. It's really making you sound ignorant, like a child, and most of all, a really big dumb ass if you think the Klan had anything to do with what's happening. The REAL Klan doesn't do stupid shit like that in S.C. The ones that pose as Klansmen do. But you wouldn't know about that. You have probably met several Real Klansmen in your life. But, you would never know it. They might be your bank president, they might be your lawyer, they might be your doctor. You don't know. You will never know. They are the ones that are really a Silent Empire. They will never reveal to you they are. They will never acknowledge them in front of you. Some of them are even Preachers in the NORTH. The ones you need to be worried about is the Aryan Brotherhood. Or Aryan Nation. They will kill you out of pure joy. They are all over too. So, when you get on these sites and forums and run your ignorant mouth, just remember you have no earthly idea who it really it is you are starting shit with. Will they drive to your home and slit your throat? Or, are they already there? You think your safe because you MIGHT have a gun and claim to know how to use it. Well I will tell you, there is someone out there who is always bigger, and more worst than you.

That's me interviewing rebels in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. i talk more about the challenges of reporting in a place like that in today's issue of my free newsletter. Consider signing up!
My Illegal Journey. By NICHOLAS KRISTOF. I mentioned in my last newsletter that I was reporting somewhere sensitive, and today's column is a fruit of the trip. I slipped into the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, without benefit of a visa or permission, to report on the brutal bombing campaign there and ...

Some say poverty is about bad choices or personal irresponsibility, but 2-year-old Malachi hasn’t made any bad choices. Here's my last column from my win-a-trip journey to Baltimore. It was one I didn't intend to write, but I just fell in love with Malachi, who seemed to exemplify so many challenges and issues that I write about.
This year’s win-a-trip journey starts with a stop in Baltimore to look at some of the challenges presented by poverty here at home.

Let's move beyond Caitlyn Jenner. Here's the moving story of two kids struggling with bullying, gender identity and sometimes suicidal thoughts. We can all learn something from listening to their struggles www.nyti.ms/1JGmTkC

I believe that the media and society as a whole has too much influence on young people's struggles for identity. I respectfully believe that this job should be reserved for parents and other important people in their lives!

This fabulous photo by Doug Mills of The New York Times perfectly captures the exhilaration in the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. Congrats to this couple--and to all America!

+Conor Haggerty I suppose if you and your liberal ilk want to cruise through life with no judgement,that's your prerogative. I prefer to live with good judgement guiding me.

Check out this video! I started as a print man, but I can recognize where a video is worth 10,000 words. And help spread the word!
Western governments are buddying up to this fabulously corrupt, oil-rich country, while ignoring its abysmal record on child mortality.

When Sudan's president was arrested, I tweeted from inside Sudan but said I couldn't disclose my location for security reasons. Here's where I was and what I was doing: http://nyti.ms/1H3Xh0G
A foxhole was supposed to be a safe haven from daily shelling by the Sudanese government. Instead, it became an inferno.

Thank you bringing light to these events. This paragraph unfortunately reminded me of Israel's policy of "mowing the grass" in Gaza, a euphemism for the regular bombings they conduct in the besieged territory:

"This was not an accident of war. It reflects a deliberate Sudanese scorched-earth, counterinsurgency strategy here in the southern end of Sudan."

May God relief to those who suffer evil at the hands of another.

 It's true that poverty is compounded by bad choices, but economic stress, mental health problems and exposure to trauma contribute, too. By not providing enough opportunity, we fail kids before they fail us.
Bad choices compound poverty, but society contributes, too.
