Why do we need spirituality?  Why do we need the air to breathe?  Without it, we die.  Being spiritual allows you to see what so many faithless ones have been denied to experience.  Many of us are so caught up in the ignorance of our arrogance that it disallows people from achieving a greater and more fulfilling view of ourselves through the actions of our faith.  Always remember, the matters of the heart are more important than the issues of the mind.  The more you think about your existence, the more your arrogance is attempting to rationalize God.  Instead, let the sentiments of the heart embrace and accept your life for what it has been, and is becoming, through an increasing strength of your faith, which will only nourish your soul to come closer to God.

Learn to let go of the physical world around you, for these are only things that last for a little while, and then break down, deteriorate, and blow away.  Don’t rely on the physicality of the world that feeds and tantalizes your senses, these stimulations only create a greater dependency on material obsessions that pull you away from God.  You were not placed in the world; instead, the world and its matrix was place around you, to mold and mature you, to determine the quality and caliber of faith you can aspire to, and to enrich your appreciation of God’s view of the world through your own spirituality.

My faith tells me I will see my father again, because I believe in my faith, and because I’ve come to trust that my faith in God will never betray me; therefore, I will see him again, talk with him, and laugh with him once more.  Your spirituality is the baptism of your new life, and it will laugh at the face of adversity whenever moments in your life get tough, because your faith in God will always stand by you, never to leave you, always to strengthen you, always to love you.

Capturing the importance of the individual and how the past can put you in a position to make a difference in the present. History, as we have come to know it, is a collage of choices made, created, and driven by all of us. Our understanding of it only helps to measure how far and with what level of sophistication we can see the world and our individual place in it.

The individual, the everyday hero, who wakes up to work his day and returns home at the end of that work, is the focus of this show. People today live in an environment they seldom know because so little is known about history. Therefore, the variety of topics and history surrounding everyday people will be made current and relevant through insightful discussions. Topics for the show will include, but are not limited to, an informed and considered view of:

• Politics
• Sports
• Art and Culture
• Philosophy and Religion
• Ethnicity and National Identity
• Science and Technology
• Psychology
• Education
• Social and Cultural Issues

In short, the show will delve into the issues of human nature and how history can assist us to better understand and cope with these issues in our modern day world. With visits from professional guest speakers, as well as "call-ins" and emails from folks contributing their insights to the discussion, the show aims to provide the public with thought-provoking moments about the quality of life we are currently living and how to contend with it. The supporters of "History and You" feel that the volume of listeners will steadily grow given the variety and interconnectedness of topics presented in a way that appeal to a wide range of age groups, income levels, and demographics.
