When I watch/read the news, it can be quite disheartening because of all the bad news that is presented. I begins to make you question the mentality of mankind. From rape, killing, robbery, corruption, and on and on, it can be overwhelming.
I was watching "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes". It tried to present this idea that mankind messed it all up and the apes might reshape a society better, but in the end, it showed the depravity of creation.
I know that this isn't the way God had it all planned out from the beginning. There was a time in the beginning when all was perfect and right. According to the Bible, it will one day return back to that perfection. I long for that day! In the meantime, let us love one another, respect one another, and show kindness. Just because we may not agree, let us show our disagreement with respect.
As the Director of ICM, my desire is to connect with the international students at Purdue University along with connecting them with American friends. This blog is some personal thoughts and stories from our experiences.
