'Dropped the ball' is the understatement of the century. I couldn't bring myself to watch Nassar's sentencing hearing this week (until the actual sentencing). I watched the first 4 days cringing and holding back tears while young ladies face the monster who sexually abused them. In the midst of those statements were unimaginable stories of … Continue reading How did this happen?
Wow! I am writing this a year after I attended the Women's March in Atlanta on January 21, 2017 Let Us March. A day that changed my outlook and changed my life. As the year progressed I have tried to narrow down my options to one issue to spend my time and money on. The … Continue reading Women
