The difference is

The difference between us and them

I had a deep conversation with my daughter last night. She was watching footage of the Minneapolis riots and couldn\’t understand why a mob of people would behave so. She\’s intellectually challenged so it was a stretch to explain, but she does understand injustice and being bullied. She understands, sadly, how people can be pushed …

White is not a skin color

There is only one race

Enough is enough is enough! The persecution and discrimination that some humans inflict on others based on the pigment in their skin is utter BULLSHIT. There is no acceptable reason and no longer any excuse of ignorance for people to perpetuate any notion of racial superiority. It’s really time for people everywhere to embrace the …

She is an expert in studies on vulnerability and shame, and her statements were espoused by session leaders and struck deep chords …

Communing with the Great Artist

Las Vegas – and Nevada – is not at all what I expected. I grew up in northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania, I\’m an Appalachian boy. The Allegheny mountains with their lush summer forests and bubbling streams have always been the place where I felt the most peace, at home with God. But for the last …

And the winner is–!

In my high school senior English lit class I loved the writing assignments. I wrote essays and short stories, poetry, and wrote my thesis on Wonder Woman. We also had reading assignments and wrote conclusively about what we read, and I did just fine. Until Miss George assigned Thomas Hardy\’s The Return of the Native. …
