My brother was born with a rare genetic disorder. I can remember learning that something was wrong just after he was born.

The Halcyon Movement is an organization concerned with culture, and January was a very big month with Trump’s inauguration, the women’s march, the march for life, the 44th year of Roe v.

I got a text from a friend yesterday morning that sickened me. His wife had discovered that Musical.ly—an app one her children often use to find funny videos—is being exploited to feed kids pornographic content.
