Sticks, Stones, And Words

Written by Mandi L. Fields It is difficult to watch the events that occurred on August 12th in Charlottesville, Virginia. To know that such racism and hatred still exists in America can be soul-crushing. Our country watched in horror as racial slurs were chanted by torch-wielding, self-proclaimed, white supremacists, counter-protestors were wounded and killed by a domestic terrorist in a speeding car, and two officers lost their lives when their helicopter crashed near the scene. It sounds like a sad {Read More}

Cyber-Bullying

Written by Ciara Buck Children are the world’s future, they are our future. Their minds are like sponges and they learn more than we think by watching, watching people like you and me. There is a difference in kids today and kids in prior years. That difference is not in us it’s in society, technology. Believe it or not the world runs on technology and kids run on social media. Social media and youth suicide are very much linked together. {Read More}

Labels

Written by Vicki Tiller I recently watched a truly powerful video by Prince Ea. He speaks and writes about inspirational and motivational content and believes the answer to every problem on the planet can be answered by love. The particular video I watched was entitled ‘I’m NOT Black, You are NOT White’ and discusses through poem, how the terms we call ourselves such as black and white are just labels. Society teaches us what to call people. We didn’t come {Read More}

More Than Just A Pretty Face

Written by Jenn Sadai When will men realize that women are more than just objects to be admired or criticized for our physical appearance? I’ve been on both sides of it, and don’t appreciate either. Recently a potential business connection added me on social media, so I accepted it. After he sent me a harmless hello, he immediately switched gears and started flirting with me. Instead of addressing me by my name, he sends me a private message saying, “Hi {Read More}

When Women Work Together!

She hosted an informal social at her house and has even planned an amazing sales opportunity for all group members at a local club. More importantly, she’s created an environment where {Read More}

Does Trump Really Support The LGBTQ+ Community?

Written by Kristen Costa On November 8th (leading into November 9th), the world watched as Donald Trump was announced to be the 45th President of the United States. Since Trump’s ascension to President, the LGBTQ community has not been given any reason to believe that their worry hasn’t been warranted. In fact, it is just the opposite. Only hours after Trump’s inauguration, the LGBTQ page, amongst others, was removed from The White House website. Hopefully not an omen of what {Read More}

There’s No Excuse For Abuse

Written by Jenn Sadai Abuse comes in many forms, from many sources and most often, both the abuser and the victim find a way to justify it. I made up a lot of excuses for the way my ex treated me. He had a hard life; he struggled with mental illness, and didn’t mean to do the things he did. Deep down he was a good guy who couldn’t control his response to all the hardships in his life. He {Read More}
