Why are colleges swinging to the left when it comes to graduation commencement speakers? We saw Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Robert DeNiro, and even socialist Bernie Sanders heading to off to inspire countless young graduates.

If you would like to order your paperback copy of my debut novel Cacophony: A Tale Of Faith And Fear, click here. It is an incredible paranormal thriller about a group of demons trying to steal human souls by assaulting their church. The Messenger Gabriel, a Guardian angel Christopher, and the Seven Archangels are sent by God to stop them. It’s a tale that mixes drama, supernatural fiction, with a dash of fantasy.
