On That 6%…

Another day, another misinterpretation of scientific information going viral. Last week, the CDC released a report that showed out of all of the COVID-19 deaths, 6% were caused only by the virus itself. Immediately, this information started circulating on Twitter and other social media that the numbers have been wrong, that only 6% of peopleContinue reading “On That 6%…”

The Perfection Hypocrisy

This will be a short one, but there was just something I wanted to get off my chest. This is a point that most people aren’t addressing, or at least not that I’ve seen. When these police shootings happen, we always hear the same things from the people who refuse to acknowledge any police wrongdoing.Continue reading “The Perfection Hypocrisy”

On the Confederate flag…

Once upon a time, in a not so distant past, our country was divided in half when the Confederate States seceded from the Union in 1860 and started the Civil War. The Confederacy consisted of 11 states led by Jefferson Davis from 1861-1865. On March 21, 1861, Confederate VP Alexander Stephens described the ideology ofContinue reading “On the Confederate flag…”

Quarantine Adventures – Day 1

I think by now we are all pretty well-versed in the Coronavirus conversation.  So I might as well just get right to it! As I’ve thought in-depth about the pandemic we are faced with, I came to the conclusion that this will be an historical event in our lifetime, and will probably be studied inContinue reading “Quarantine Adventures – Day 1”

What Have We Become?

Let me tell you a little story.  Once upon a time, my daughter was ill and required a stay in the hospital for treatment.  She had gone through surgeries and hospital stays before,  so it wasn’t exactly a new thing.  But this particular treatment, while necessary, was something she was adamantly against.  When I hadContinue reading “What Have We Become?”

Breaking the Cycle

Well, here we are.  In the wake of yet another school shooting.  The drama has commenced.  The outrage, the finger pointing,  the “it’s the guns” people, and “it’s not the guns” people, arguing until they’re blue in the face, with neither side budging.  It’s the thoughts and prayers, it’s the “now’s not the time toContinue reading “Breaking the Cycle”

Total Eclipse of the Heart

In case you have been living under a rock, there is a total solar eclipse happening tomorrow.  The moon hasn’t thrown this much shade at America in nearly a century.  (See what I did there?)  My inner nerd is ecstatic!  It’s expected to be the most observed eclipse ever.  Not surprising, as our culture isContinue reading “Total Eclipse of the Heart”

Is It October Yet?

Fall is in the air! Ha, ha, just kidding.  Of course it’s not.  It’s freaking 105 degrees outside today in Fort Worth.  Fall is the last thing on the mind of the Texas weather gods. But…I’m already craving it. I’m ready for football, and pumpkin flavored everything, and of course, Halloween.  I love Halloween.  ItContinue reading “Is It October Yet?”
