Anselm Jonathan. Jonathan means "the Lord has given." The Lord gave us eight weeks with our precious baby and then took him home to be with Him. We're mourning the loss of our baby, but we're so grateful for the time we had this tender soul in our care.
“For I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe-that unless I believe I shall not understand." ~St. Anselm
In our interview, he described how he was arrested for reporting on a hunger strike [what was Gandhi famous for?] and the police threatened to trump up a number of charges to keep him from criticizing the government.
A growing social media buzz decrying his arrest forced the police to release him. Demonstrating that our attention to human rights violations protects journalists who risk their lives and livelihoods for the sake of truth.
Every like, every share, every view - adds to that protection as we here in America bring fair and open government to the Punjab.

Steve Macias is a Christian pro-life activist, and he aspires to be a minister. He is the executive director of Cherish California’s Children and founder of the St. Anselm Leadership Institute. He is a delegate to the California Republican Party State Central Committee and Vice President of the California Republican Assembly.
Raised in West Sacramento, California, Steve grew up in the diverse Broderick community where he learned Spanish and English. After high school, he started a group of College Republicans at Sacramento City College where he was elected student body president. There he became the target of an illegal recall election for refusing to censor a pro-life group on campus. After a nationally publicized debate, Macias was reinstated and he became a pro-life leader, pioneering the West Coast Regional Coordinator position at Students for Life of America.
At just twenty-three, Steve has proven himself one of the state’s most articulate spokesmen for a reasoned and thoughtful libertarian-republicanism. He has also been a defender of biblical Christianity as a writer and speaker on issues of Christian theology, ethics, and economics.
He has worked in a number of California initiative and candidate campaigns, including Assemblyman Dan Logue, former Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, and a campaign to draft Congressman Tom McClintock for president. Steve is also the legislative director of the Hispanic Values Union and the Communications Director for Consumers for Choice, a political advocacy group.
