    A Bronx Tale, 1993 -- Movie Review w/ 1Silva

    in Movies

    Gangster Sonny is the big man in the Bronx neighborhood of an Italian small boy named Calogero. A shooting witnessed by the boy (nicknamed C) is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disapproves. C grows up under the wing of both men, torn between his own natural honesty and his fascination with Sonny. C's neighborhood cronies get involved in theft, use of guns, and racial fights. When C falls for an African American girl, things don't get any easier. C's leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.

  • Children without Their Biological Fathers

    in Christianity

    Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data. 

    The number of children living apart from their biological fathers has more than doubled over the last four decades amid a growing decline in nuclear families.

    In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010.

    One Christian artist says he hopes his music will spark conversations about the growing problem and bring healing to families across the nation.

    In August, acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Nhira released his new single "Back Where You Belong" from his debut album Hope's Stand. The powerful track is described as an "anthem for the fatherless," and Nhira told The Christian Post about how a shopping trip to a local Walmart inspired the song.

    "The song was inspired by an experience I had as a college student," Nhira, a graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, told CP. "I went to this Walmart (across the street from campus) and one of the things the Lord was highlighting in my mind was these mothers who were there shopping with their kids and struggling to look after their kids and shop at the same time. And so the question arose in my mind 'Where is the father?'"
