Damaged

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 20, 2007

...to visit their dad every other weekend. During one of their visits, and also this being one of the last two years of my relationship with Q, was when I had my first insight to his darker side. Q loved to frequent bars and I guess because he was a DJ part-time he kinda-sorta got used to that environment. I was never a heavy drinker so I did not particularly care for that set. I had grown to care for Q, more than I wanted to admit so I would just go just to appease him. Besides I actually loved and respected this man. Did I say respected? Besides, if I told him that I did not want to go, he... (more)

Bankrupt

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 12, 2007

...with the reflection bouncing back at you? We don't have to live our lives emotionally bankrupt. We can change ourselves. Even though changing is one of the most challenging tasks one will ever endeavor, it can be accomplished with a great deal of success. We don't have to be a product of the environment our past relationships laid out for us. We can change the perception we have about our lives. We can change the image of ourselves that we see on the regular. Change. A small word right? But boy does it carry a colossal weight! If you beg to differ, after reading this story, sit down and... (more)

Perception

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 11, 2007

...Wanna know what I was doing? Crying. I knew in order for my children to continue to have a “positive perception” of the “Place”, I had to become their compass. Subconsciously they received their direction of how they were supposed to feel about living in this new environment from my actions and/or reactions. Hence, I had to put on my game face. I had to be ready to play my “A” game “e-a-c-h”-and-“e-v-e-r-y” morning. Miraculously I trained myself to remain in autopilot mode. I did not allow myself to think about what had to be... (more)

Sustainability, Growing Trend or Annoying Phase

By Brad Simpson, published on Nov 28, 2007

...is discussing this topic, but does it have the staying power to actually have an impact on our everyday lives? From the hippies of the 60's, to the liberal college's of the 90's, to the youth of today, there is a growing concern about the stresses that our fossil fuel use is having on the environment. With the rise in the price of gasoline, the market for hybrid cars has taken the country by surprise. What was once thought of as a gimmick, is slowly being accepted as normal. The fact that people are starting to drive hybrids does not necessarily mean that people are putting the... (more)

Somaya Reece, Renaissance Woman

By Gary Schwind, published on Nov 23, 2007

...are not black or white there you are just human. I can't explain it but you really feel you are living life when you are there. In your blog, you mention your charity work. What is the most rewarding thing you do, or have done? There is not one more than the other. I grew up in a horrible environment and saw a lot of abuse on all levels. So for me it's the fact that I have been doing it and will continue doing it for the love of it. When I feel most rewarded is when I am working with my own two hands. Serving food or passing out clothes when it's just me eye to eye with the people I am... (more)

I Want My Lead-based Paint!!!

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 21, 2007

...paint on toys coming to America from China, there is something that I have to consider. Is it just me or is there an inverse correlation between the amount of lead exposure and the use of Ritalin? When I was a child, we had lead-based paint, leaded gasoline and other forms of lead in our environment and children weren’t being diagnosed with ADHD or other mental problems. As soon as we began reducing lead exposure, we began seeing an increase in ADHD, gang violence, anorexia, bulimia, teen depression, liberalism, Islamo-fascism, anti-Americanism and socialism. It seems to me... (more)

Victimization Of Our Elderly

By Credo, published on Nov 2, 2007

... the youth is found in jails, in gangs, and in wars searching for a method of their own destruction. Because our system has never set up any private and individual social security accounts each generation pays for the retirement of the proceeding generation. What’s left is a social environment that preemptively abandons its youth condemning them to a uncertain future, moreover plaguing our elderly with pensions and social securities that allow them at the end of the month to eat such remedies as cat and dog food because they can’t afford any better. “Once you get... (more)
