True Story

First things first. I’m a happy, well-adjusted, contributing member of society. I refrain from telling some personal stories because I certainly don’t want to burden anyone or gain any sympathy. In fact, being pitied is insulting to me. So, as you read, please keep in mind I am strong, successful and happy. I’m inspired to write today having heard stories of young women that are slut-sham...

Song for the Sparrow

Now the cage hangs empty. The constant twitter is gone. Never  again will we listen to her unrelenting song. Content in her confinement, she longed at times to be free. She was kept as adornment and bred for simplicity. Over years she'd been neglected; the gift of flight refused. Little by little as decades passed, she seemed to lose her muse. I assume she needed freedom to find her ...

I have three best girlfriends. Among the three there have been two abortions, and two miscarriages. Today, two are married, one has two children and the other is expecting her first in a few weeks. The ot...

What I Felt After My Unite Against Rape Photo Got Posted

I am writing regarding my photo submission for the Unite Against Rape Campaign. First, I would like to thank UniteWomen.org and the entire Unite Against Rape team for what they're doing with this campaign.

THINK GLOBALLY BUT ACT LOCALLY

Buying locally means just what it says: purchase whatever foods and goods that are grown and produced as close to home as possible. You will not only support your local farmers and economy but have peace of mind that your purchases conform to all governmental guidelines for production and farming methods. Many people never stop to consider where their food comes from; especially if it is market...

DOMA, Prop 8 and SB5 – A Testament to Activism

If ever there was a period of time that demonstrates the effectiveness of activism, it is now.  The defeat of SB5 in Texas and Supreme Court rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8 is the culmination of so many people standing up to inequality in so many ways…but standing together. We need to acknowledge each other in our shared fight…those on the ground protesting, those...
