Who is Buk Carmichael? As I observe the world and all that is in it, I often ask myself this question. A fading baby boomer, from the latter end of this era of America, I have witnessed great shifts in culture, beliefs and paradigms. Consider me a byproduct of the pop culture, with an immortal soul, a dismal liberal with a bent on conservative, a repentant sinner with a love for Jesus. I’m an American; the best of all worlds, within a crumbling one. I am an honest to goodness living contradiction that came out on the right side of the process.
I observe this world and its contradictions, always in flux, never a dull moment. My commentary regards the quirky, the inconsistent and the pervicacious. However unsettled this world seems to me, I have clung to my faith, nurtured my beliefs and honed my point of view. The truth is out there, and I aim to find it. Unlike many who opine at the events of the world, both seen and unseen, I hold my thoughts to be the closest thing to the truth. Yet, the question remains unanswered, “Who is Buk Carmichael?”
