A news break

The world can seem overwhelming right now, with so much going on. There are days when I just want to watch comedies on TV and ignore the real world.

Well, I have decided that that is an okay thing to do sometimes. While I am not an advocate of burying my head in the sand . . . → Read More: A news break

Abortion

I am so tired of hearing all these crazy things that some men – and yes, some women as well – are pushing through state legislatures, trying to control women. Because that is, indeed, what it is about – controlling women. All the anti-abortion measures being pushed through the states now are really not about . . . → Read More: Abortion

Cheating to get your kid into a good school

Just when I think that people really can’t get any more disgusting, they prove me wrong. Now it seems that some rich people aren’t satisfied with the enormous leg-up that their children already have, they need to make sure that their children have more privilege than other people. And some are apparently fine with cheating . . . → Read More: Cheating to get your kid into a good school

Snow

Snow – I love it, and I can’t get around in it. Oh, I can drive in it just fine, but I can’t walk in it anymore. I am afraid of falling, so guess I will just have to stay in.

I do have to say that the snow outside my house is beautiful to . . . → Read More: Snow

RIP John McCain

John McCain died last week; he will most certainly be missed. I didn’t always agree with what he said and did, but most of the time he seemed to be doing it because he thought it was best for the country. He really seemed to have a love of this country that transcended political parties. . . . → Read More: RIP John McCain

Guns again

I am totally flabbergasted at the people who are willing to bully the kids who are marching for their lives right now. People (and I won’t name names, though you probably know who I am talking about) who are calling these kids names, claiming they are “crisis actors,” and saying they are being used by . . . → Read More: Guns again

Another school shooting

Another school shooting…my heart hurts so bad. I still cry when I see things about it on the news or on social media. And it makes me sad and angry at the same time.

I really do not want to be one of the people who becomes so hardened on one side or the other . . . → Read More: Another school shooting

More women speak out

One more time, then I am done with this topic. Now more and more women are coming forward. I really want to believe all of them, but I am starting to have my doubts. I wish we could rely on everyone – men and women – to tell the truth about these things, but we . . . → Read More: More women speak out

Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

There are a lot of women coming out of the darkness and telling us about how they were abused, assaulted, and harassed. There are a lot of people who are saying that these things happened a long time ago and why didn’t these women come out sooner with these allegations.

Come on people! The reason . . . → Read More: Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

My heart hurts

My heart hurts. I look for the good in the world, but am having a hard time finding it. The bad things, as usual, are hard to miss. There are global tragedies, national tragedies, and personal tragedies happening almost continuously. I have so many questions: How did we get to this point? How do we . . . → Read More: My heart hurts
