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 “Black Lives Matter”

BLACK LIVES MATTER. If hearing that phrase triggers an immediate angry or negative response in you, this post is for you. If hearing that phrase makes you immediately reply with “All Lives Matter” or “Blue Lives Matter,” this post is for you. I think for the most part, the negative response people have to “BlackContinue reading “On “Black Lives Matter””

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…”

On White Privilege…

Hi friends. I’m going to be doing a short series of posts to address some of the things going on in our crazy world today. I am by no means an expert on anything. I am, however, an empath. I feel things. I feel other people’s things. And I am the kind of person whoContinue reading “On White Privilege…”

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”

What defines courage?

I will be sharing 2 blog posts this week.  One will be serious.  Since I have already opened the controversial can of worms with my last TWO posts, apparently, I thought I might as well go for a 3rd.  My 2nd post this week will be purely comic relief.  So stay tuned! Since the appearanceContinue reading “What defines courage?”

Dear Duggars:

I have never had the intention of getting political/controversial on this blog.  My posts are normally intended for fun and relatability, and I don’t ever want to try to ruffle feathers.  But since I am sitting here fuming over what I just witnessed, I feel I must get this out or else something in myContinue reading “Dear Duggars:”
