“Are you looking forward to seeing your family?” I ask my VP on Monday. I know the reason she was going back home wasn’t exactly a happy reunion because it was her brother’s memorial, but I still asked. She began to get emotional, which wasn’t my intent when I originally inquired. “I’ve been thinking about it and I guess I just haven’t accepted it,” she … Continue reading Emptiness, It’s Such A Horrible Feeling
When the Orlando shooting happened in 2016, I wrote a blog post stating I no longer feel safe in this world. Then, when I heard the news that 17 people – 17 INNOCENT people – were killed at Parkland High school in Florida, I felt sick. How would our government continue to let that happen and not step in?

So many people go through tragedies each day. Not having enough money to buy food, shelter or having a supportive family are some serious situations to be in. And, sometimes, those people who go through that never complain or talk about it. I’d like to be one of those who don’t even mention it or complain about it because what’s the point?
