When I was 11 years old, I sat on my uncle’s front porch one lovely summer Sunday evening, absently gazing at our church across the street. In that moment, the words of the hymn “The Old Rugged Cross” came over me with real impact. “On a hill far away, stood an old rugged cross.” The jolting...
  Columbia – Today, Americans for Prosperity- South Carolina (AFP-SC) celebrated the passage of the FIRST STEP Act, a package of critical criminal justice reforms.
