Why Donald Trump Needs Our Prayers


You say you want to build a wall. And you want Mexico to pay for it. Could that be because you have spent years building a wall surrounding your heart and have made everyone that you disagree with pay for your loneliness, your unhappiness? And you want to physically display how you've been feeling?

You are making us pay already. You are making disabled people, women, journalists, and Muslims pay, to say the least. I understand that illegal immigration is a problem, but is it necessary to degrade a whole country, a whole culture, based on preconceived notions, stereotypes, and generalizations? Yes, there are Mexicans that have crossed the border that also happen to be rapists and murderers, but guess what? There are also beautiful, amazing, and hardworking people crossing who have a beating heart--just like you do. They suffer, they enjoy things, they want to provide for their family, they have a dream. I'm not saying that crossing illegally is okay, but there is no need to offend everyone who is Mexican. I am Mexican and I will defend my people no matter what. I am a US citizen as well and I love America and would fight for its people in a second, but when you make fun of 'some Mexicans' you are making fun of me. You are making US citizens like myself who come from a Mexican background angry and hurt. You are therefore making fun of Americans because all Americans were once immigrants, who became citizens. That means you don't actually want to "Make America Great Again" for if you really meant that, you would respect its people.

I'm sorry you're not happy. I'm sorry all the money in the world has not been able to satisfy you. Sorry, you don't love yourself and therefore cannot accept love from others. Building a wall around your heart might protect you from getting hurt, but it prevents love from ever going in. You are blocking all the kindness and charity anyone could ever offer you. If you are not able to accept love from others, then you will therefore never be able to accept yourself.

I'm going to pray for you and I invite all my Christian brothers and sisters to pray for you so you might be able to tear down that wall and be able to experience love, satisfaction, healing, and forgiveness. Once you feel that love, you will be able to share it. You don't belong in the white house. You have to work on yourself before you can try to 'help' anybody else.

Tear down the wall around your heart before you start to build another.

In Christ,

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
