Immigration is such a layered subject, and in the USA it has become such a divisive one...at least in the Trump era. However, immigration isn't new.

We all want a better quality of life and healthcare is one of those things that is far too complicated that it has to be.

Censorship, Social Media, & Speaking The Truth
There's been a lot going on in the United States over the last several weeks. Doctors who claim there is a treatment for COVID-19 being censored on social media, tech giants being interrogated by congress, talk of the app Tik-Tok being banned, and just the overall dark pit that the comment sections have turned into. How do we use social media for good? How can we speak out against censorship? What is God saying all of this?
