Filed under children, community, in the news

The Penn State child rape scandal hurts my heart every time I hear more about the horrible details of how Sandusky destroyed the innocence of likely dozens of young boys and betrayed the public trust. But what is also troubling to me is the number of people around him who allegedly witnessed his attacks on […]

Today, President Obama gave his annual back to school speech at Benjamin Banneker High School in Washington, DC. Incredibly endearing was the poised young lady who introduced President Obama. I can’t find her full name. But her first name was Donae and she did such a great job. I think she was the student class […]

Today I went biking, a new complement to my workout routine. Having been away from it for a couple of weeks, I was huffing and puffing my way through the park trying to get in my (close to) 10 miles. My attitude wasn’t the best. I might have actually been cursing the road under my […]

Adult Supervised Drinking Doesn’t Promote Responsible Drinking

Filed under children

Did you grow up with friends that had “cool parents” who would let you drink alcohol as a teen? I did. And I get where most of them were coming from. As a parent, they figured their teens would experiment with alcohol. In order to deter binge drinking and possibly drunk driving, these “cool parents” […]

Depending on the week, my Saturday hair appointment can be humorous, excruciating, or freakishly pleasant.  This Saturday’s appointment proved eventful.  It left me more perplexed than anything. While in the shampoo room, a mother was getting her hair washed while her two young children stood and watched (quite loudly, but innocently enough).  The boy and […]

I’m not talking about this in the figurative sense.  It is literally taking lives.  And they should pay. For those who may not have followed the story, several months ago, 7-year old Aiyana Jones was killed by a Detroit Police officer after they stormed into her grandmother’s house….with A&E camera crew in tow to film their […]

Filed under children, in the news

This article came across my RSS reader and my heart just sank, and then began hurting. This may not be a question of intent, but it is a question of judgment. Who the hell puts methadone in a sippy cup? And yes, she still needs to rot in jail, if only to make sure she […]
