Nineteen Years Later

I think anyone who was a teen or older will always know exactly where they were when that second plane hit the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. That moment when the life of every person in America changed.Until that moment, we enjoyed a sense of safety. We had never known the fear and anguish…

It is hard to believe that we are 10 days into September. It seems like it both took forever to get here and that it came too quickly, and how it feels like both, I do not know. Let's be real. 2020 has been an incredibly long and challenging year. I do not think that…

Another Week Begins

So, its another week in 2020 and starting out as bizarrely as the rest of the year. When you wake up and read the news that people in another state are getting their mail-in ballots to vote safely amidst the global pandemic that has the current president's face on it telling them not to let…

Let’s ALL commit to taking a risk today…

In today's turbulent world it may seem strange that I am saying today it is more important then ever to take risks, but that is the idea I am proposing today. Whether the risk is talking to someone you normally wouldn't, going skydiving, joining an organization you normally wouldn't, taking your dream job or attending…

No such thing as color blind…

OK, so, have always prided myself on being color blind. Oh I don't notice people's skin color I say witheringly. Well I used to. I would get enfuriated when people said that it was impossible not to notice people's skin color right away. As I got older, as I became a fighter for rights for…
