Ending Reparative Therapy

Written by Brittany Brown         Anecdotal stories of a harmful practice have cropped up over the years, with brief coverage in the mainstream. We saw a revival of this conversation most recently with the 2016 election when Mike Pence was appointed as Donald Trump’s running mate, now Vice President.

Expectation, Society Standards, And Trigger Points

Written by Lara Antonia           You are allowed to have your own feelings. No one has the right to tell you, that you shouldn’t feel a certain way.

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.
