It’s impossible to imagine what goes into the recovery process for the average person, having to sift through the rubble of your home, your workplace, replacing what you can and mourning for what, or who, you can’t.
Although the deadly Camp Fire was recently declared 100% contained and under control, the members of the devastated communities ravaged by the blaze have the monumental task of rebuilding ahead of them.
While the feat of rebuilding a whole town from scratch seems near-impossible, glimmers of hope have been arriving in the form of heartfelt assistance from neighbors near and far and continue to bless the lives of those affected by the fires.
One particularly generous soul was found in one Bob Wilson, an executive living in San Diego who donated over $1.1 million to the students and staff of Paradise High School.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
“They weren’t going to the prom. They weren’t going to be able to hang out with their friends or whatever they were supposed to be doing, and I said, ‘I’m going to help them,’” Wilson said of his gift of $1,000 to each of the 980 students and 105 staff members of PHS.
“I’m really appreciative because we can put it towards moving on,” one student named Arianna Harris shared with CBS13 Sacramento. “We hit bottom so we can only progress and get better.”
While $1,000 may not solve every problem for every person in the aftermath of such a destructive fire, it’s a greatly appreciated leg-up to put toward resources or relocation. “I decided to put it toward rent. Like getting a new house,” Harris added.
As for what Wilson expects to get from his generous gesture, he said, “If they take away from this, ‘some guy 600 miles away thought enough to come up here and give them a check,’ that’s all the compensation I want out of it.”
“If they see this and decide, ‘hey I can do something,’” Wilson explains, “gee, what a great thing that would be.”
And his generosity certainly has had an impact on the students of Paradise.
“It’s incredible to think that someone could be so kindhearted,” said James Clery, an 11th grader at PHS.
“I do hope that that man knows that I’m very thankful,” Harris said.
A truly incredible and inspiring gesture!

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism
They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.
The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…
How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal
here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.
Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
