Kraft, Rick
What is the worst act you have ever done in your entire life? No, really, what is it? If you have to think too long about this, I might be a little concerned. What if your tombstone told those who survive you for generations to come what the act was that you are the least proud of your entire life...

Mother Teresa said, “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” The most important piece of furniture in a family’s home is the dining room table...period. My dining room table needs to be replaced. It is over 35 years old, but it has served its purpose. More on this later......

A part of every person’s life involves traveling off the map. We really have no choice. We make plans to live life on the map and then something happens and the map is no good anymore. We may as well throw it in the trash. Sometimes I think that experiencing life is like Christopher Columbus...
Life is interesting without faces. I didn’t realize how much of experiencing life is tied to seeing another’s face until people’s faces have been taken away. I have a hard time interacting with others without being able to see their face. And without my face I suddenly have a different relationship...

I think it’s all right to begin a column with a confession. So here I go...I’m “old school.” Not only am I “old school,” regardless of what you think, I am proud of it! So, what does that mean? It means different things to different people. My children might say, “Dad, it’s time to catch up with...
War is hell. Nevertheless, it has been around since man was created...and, sadly, it is not going to go away anytime soon. John Steinbeck said “All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.” We desire to live in a land of freedom with equal opportunities for everyone in a stable...
Who’re you going to call? I don’t think Ghostbusters really exist. You wake up in the middle of the night to a thud in the other room. Your heart is racing as you leave your bedroom. You walk out into your living room and you find yourself face to face with a stranger. You pick up your phone and...

We live in divisive times. Everyone has an opinion. We have freedom of speech. Mix these three together and making it through a day without getting angry at another or being attacked for what you believe in can be quite difficult. It’s tempting to just stay in bed all day. Social injustice has...

Perception is reality to the holder. Good or bad, right or wrong, our perceptions control us. They drive our world. And once we grab hold of a perception, it is often hard to change.  We make decisions based upon our view of the world. We each have our own unique view of the world and we have no...

What is it that you spend the most of your time anxious about? What is heavy on your heart? What keeps you awake at night? What you worry about defines you. It will drive your life. Every decision you make will be influenced by what defines you. If you answer the above questions honestly, you will...
