Why do we have such an inconsistent relationship with coffee beans? We’ll crunch them whole when they are dunked in dark chocolate. But if a little chunk of bean makes its way into our cup of java in the morning, we frantically fish it out as an offender. Everything is context.

  1. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the “why” heard around the world with Harding’s involvement in Kerrigan’s knee-whacking incident at the 1994 Olympics. The drama of that time stripped all the splendor and sportsmanship of this momentous event. With the advent of the Winter Olympics around the corner, I’m sure this topic will come up again.

  2. God does wondrous works and his plans are perfect. I may not understand why he is who he said he is and grasp all 1100 chapters of his word. I don’t ask why pain is afflicted throughout my bones. “Use me” how you want so that I won’t complain like David. I choose to go about it that way that’s why.

  3. Why is what I ask when baffled and don’t know the answer. When I search for a reason concerning something that occurred, I want to determine why. Answering the why question can resolve problems and put your mind at ease. Determining why is significant; this can lead to never again.
