Over 44,000 suicides in America every year (afsp.org), reveal that people are afraid of both life and death. Life can be a struggle, life can have pain, but there is also much pleasure, happiness and comfort in our lives. From a Christian perspective, there is an old song that echoes, “Jesus is the joy of living, He’s the dearest friend I know.” This strikes at the core of life’s value, relationships. It is not what we have or achieve in life that gives life light and color, it is the people with whom we live it. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) The Christian life is not a list of rules for the “do’s” and “do nots” of life, it is sharing life with our Creator and living in this relationship daily. It is a source of hope, comfort and purpose no matter what life throws at us.

Change can be scary. GCU honors student and senior Clarissa Galaviz can attest to that. She will be graduating in April 2017 with a dual degree in communications and digital film with an emphasis in production. However, when it came to choosing a university, Galaviz took a chance on a whole new country when she moved to the U.S. in August 2012 from a city in Sinaloa, Mexico called Culiacan.

Imagine an eerie, but super cool parallel universe, like something out of a Christopher Nolan film. That’s what Australia is like compared to the U.S. Everything is exactly the opposite. The lights switch the opposite way, cars drive on the opposite side of the road and the driver’s side is on the right (wrong) side of the car. The seasons are opposite, they use Celsius and the metric system, the phone rings differently and McDonald’s burgers are even being served upside down at some places. (True story!)
