Peter L. Berger Peter L. Berger's blog:

So, what do they say now in order to qualify his every pronouncement? After Donald Trump’s epic dress-down of the leaders of the democratic world, we see legions of self-avowed pragmatists coming forth to right-phrase the U.S. President. They say that he did not mean what he said, or failed to sa...

Tomorrow is Memorial Day in the United States. For those who aren’t familiar with it, Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and it is a day to remember those who have died while in the service of the US Armed Forces. I want to dedicate this blog post to them. These souls are some of t...

When winter arrives, the trees must sigh in sadness as they see their leaves falling. They say: ‘We will never be like we were before.’ Of course. Or still, what is the meaning of renewing oneself?

How do we celebrate though? That form has changed throughout the years, and so did its relevant fashion. Remembrance began to take a different shape. How... Read more of this blog post »

North Texans on Goodreads--I don't often write about non-book subjects, but I'm highly recommending Tony Award-winning Dallas Theater Center's production of Inherit the Wind. Unbelievable performances from stellar actors on a humane theme about the power of beliefs and ideas.
