Begin with the First Step

Last week, I called an old friend of mine, who’s also my son’s Godmother. She’s a hardworking woman who’s been in the trenches of teaching since graduating college. She jumped right in working in the inner cities of Baltimore. Over the years, she has become tired, tired of the uphill battle that she seems to...

Check out what’s going on with the DARK Act!   Anti-GMO labeling groups are at it again. The “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,” officially H.R. 4432, and more accurately dubbed the “Deny...

Spread the Compassion with #1000Speak

It’s another Friday and I’m so happy to be here as a blogger in 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion (#1000Speak). 1000Speak started with an understanding that even though we might get older, we still all need the metaphorical village around us, and the compassion of others in our lives.
