Join us for a full hour of news and views. We start with the headlines of the days. We then turn our attention to the policy change regarding transgenders in the military. We will hear from a 36-year veteran who retired with the rank of lieutenant general. Rounding out the hour, we will learn of a new initiative led by African-American mothers of murdered children, and its mission is to bring together law enforcement and community partners to support solutions to senseless violence, while pushing back against the “defund the police” movement.
We all wonder what comes after death. It’s time to separate fact from fiction and learn what the Bible has to say. You'll be heartened to learn that believers will reconnect with their loved ones; receive a wonderful new body; say goodbye to sin, sorrow, and sickness; and enjoy face-to-face fellowship with God! Discover why the best is yet to come.

Robert L. Woodson, Sr. founded the Woodson Center in 1981 to help residents of low-income neighborhoods address the problems of their communities. A former civil rights activist, he has headed the National Urban League Department of Criminal Justice, and has been a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Foundation for Public Policy Research. Referred to by many as “godfather” of the neighborhood empowerment movement, for more than four decades, Woodson has had a special concern for the problems of youth. In response to an epidemic of youth violence that has afflicted urban, rural and suburban neighborhoods alike, Woodson has focused much of the Woodson Center’s activities on an initiative to establish Violence-Free Zones in troubled schools and neighborhoods throughout the nation. He is an early MacArthur “genius” awardee and the recipient of the 2008 Bradley Prize, the Presidential Citizens Award, and a 2008 Social Entrepreneurship Award from the Manhattan Institute.
