Welcome to My Blog

I would like to take the time to welcome everybody to my new blog that I have created and a first time blogger. There are three reasons I decided to start blogging. First, I believe that the blogs are the future method of communicating with the ever-shrinking world. Second, blogging provides a forum for people to discuss a wide variety of topics that affect out lives. Finally, I have always wanted to start my own blog and after spending sometime as the intern running the PhilCast Facebook fan page, I felt that it was time to start my own blog.

You might, wonder, what type of content that I will be focusing on this blog. Let me tell you about my background. Since the fifth grade, my favorite subject was history since God blessed me with gifts of long-term memory, understanding the concepts of history, and able to recall what I have read in countless history books. History was the subject I did best in from the fifth grade, through high school, college, and finally at Cardinal Stritch University where I received my Masters of Arts in History. Throughout my study of history, I developed a philosophy believing that the best way for people to understand current events and be an informed citizen is to have a basic knowledge of history. Therefore, I decided to make this blog a little different from the thousands of blogs out in cyberspace. Rather than taking a particular political point of view, I am going to blog on current events taking a historical point of view, providing readers with some historical analysis using my skills as an amateur historian

The blog will be on a part time basis since I have a regular career and some topics will require additional research compared to other topics. I will do my best to keep the blog fresh. Finally, feel free to provide any comments, suggestions, or questions about the content of my blog by e-mailing me at
