Everyone experiences pain at some point in their lifetime — it is inevitable. In fact, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. The American Academy of Pain Medicine estimates that 1.5 billion people are affected by pain worldwide and pain is cited as one of the leading causes of disability and contributor to health care costs.
A recent General Mills Cheerios commercial has reminded us Americans (and those in other parts of the world) that race still causes severe social and political upset in 2013. A 30-second YouTube commercial featuring a young biracial child interacting with her white mother and black father has created a cyber firestorm of racially-charged attacks: “disgusting,” “racial genocide,” “anti-white,” and “want to vomit.”

That constitution specifically says Islam is the national religion. Somewhat contrary to our Constitution, which supports religious freedom. How is it possible to have a free democracy when the government tells you who to worship as your spiritual savior?
