Saving Truth

Saving Truth in a Post Truth World  an article on BreakPoint  by: Eric Metaxas &  David Carlson Maybe the biggest obstacle to truth in today’s post-truth world isn’t falsehood. It’s confusion.

The Bridge

A new Choluteca Bridge, also known as the Bridge of Rising Sun, was commissioned in Honuras in 1998, the same year that Hurricane Mitch roared through the country.
