RICHMOND, Va. – Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign stressed the theme of unity before a large rally of supporters in the capital of the swing state of Virginia.

As I write this a combination of Iranian-backed Shiite militias and Sunni tribal fighters, assisted by U.S. and ally airstrikes, mount a siege around the ISIS-controlled city of Fallujah. Inside, thousands of ISIS fighters, who took residence in Fallujah's neighborhoods almost 2.5 years ago, wait: their snipers ready, their land mines buried, their barricades defying the attack.
Suspended between all this are 50,000 souls trapped within the city walls. Men, women, and children — who alone number around 20,000 — face the cruelest days of their lives, as ISIS fighters will stop at nothing to keep control of the city.
If they flee, they'll get shot. If they stay, they'll be used as human shields — even the women and children. Recently, images leaked out of Fallujah of children with blond hair and bright eyes. They are either Christians or Yazidis and they will escape or they will die a brutal death. more >>
Two Christian United States military veterans are in the middle a 47-day, cross-country bicycle tour to raise awareness for post traumatic stress disorder and aim to raise $1 million to support a growing, God-centered ministry that helps combat veterans overcome their struggles by helping them accept God's will for their lives.
As estimates show that at least 22 U.S. military veterans die from suicide every day, U.S. Marine veteran Michael Priddy and U.S. Army veteran David Allison embarked on a 2,700-mile No Man Rides Alone bicycle tour on April 28 with the goal of connecting other military veterans with the spiritual help that they need to overcome their struggles with PTSD.
The two men launched their voyage in Squaw Valley, California, and will ride from town-to-town until they reach the Marine base in Quantico, Virginia. more >>
