My Country is on Life Support and the Prognosis Is Not Good

Resuscitating Uncle Sam

Yesterday was one of the most emotionally charged days for me that I have had in a long time. I sat here behind my laptop screen crying and enraged about the SCOTUS ruling inviting corporations and the 1% to take over more of our government and elected officials. Make no mistake about it - this has been coming and in the plans for decades. These corporations don't care one damn about the PEOPLE of...

I first met this incredible woman in 2013. Our friendship was not a long one but she touched my life in many ways. She sent me a friend request at the first of the year, and as I went to look at her page before accepting that friend request, I knew this woman was someone special. Her smile on her profile pic was one of the friendliest smiles I had seen in a long time. What really made me think she...

Good-Bye GOP

Black and White Chess-long goodbye

Last Presidential election it was about making history. I cried that night because finally America cast aside its prejudice and racism and voted for a man, not based on his skin color, but on who he was as a man. I was so proud, so grateful that in my lifetime I saw the struggles of my parent’s generation fighting for civil rights and equality come to fruition. On Nov. 6th I know there will...

If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has a ways to try shut that whole thing down.” Todd, I do not accept your apology! The ...

Sisterhood Is Powerful

UniteWomen.org-sock monkey

  Sisterhood is a word that I have written about many times and discussed frequently in Women’s Studies classes. I understood its meaning. I understood the concept. It was not until the last few months that I have experienced it personally and come to fully understand it. You see I have never been a “girls girl.” I played sports growing up, had a few close friends that were girls, bu...
