Standing on Hollywood Blvd, dressed up in a cocktail dress axiously awaiting what was in store across the street at the Kodak Theatre, one had to think, what am I doing here.
Along with a group of girls, some who came together, and a few like me who came by themselves, we were there for a main purpose. Of course other than trying to earn money for the holiday.

Christians believe in the Bible. America, whether you like it or not, was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. But there is something non-Christians need to know about the Bible before you start using it to contradict that for which we stand.
