Guilt and Words

August 9, 2020

Guilt is a word and issue we need to know and deal with. We are facing it right now as the race issue divides rather than unites us a nation with a major election in November 2020. Webster’s defines it several different ways, from official guilt in the commission of a crime or offense to […]
