A common saying is that the two things we cannot avoid are death and taxes. We should add a third pillar to the old saying by including change. Change affects young and old, both genders and all races and religious backgrounds. No one and no thing is above its reach.

Everybody is looking for love. Regardless if we realize it or not, love is what we all ultimately yearn for. Human beings spend copious amounts of time in the pursuit of love. We do everything we can – online dating, going out to clubs and bars – to find that perfect catch. So much time, effort and money is spent searching for the “right one.”
Plastic bags and Styrofoam cups adorn the fence line. Newspapers billow along the roadside. Cigarette butts are scattered across the ground like stars across the night sky. It’s a beautiful scene.
