I’m Mourning

A good friend’s husband just passed from brain cancer. He was around my age (~40). He left behind a wife, 3 young kids, and a wonderful dog. My heart aches for my friend and her kids. I just found out this morning. Her husband has been battling brain cancer for years. And has put up…

Symbols of oppression and hate need to come down. But…

On Defunding The Police…
