Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 3 of 3)

I find it most upsetting in the “We will not let the government interfere with our right to bare (sic) arms” touting, is that those who are saying this aren’t listening to all the details of what’s actually going on in the world. They are only hearing “stricter laws” without hearing the details. There is […]

Life in a Day

When we first heard about the “Life in a Day” project (original blog we read), we were quite intrigued. Everyone from around the world was invited to submit videos, including home videos, of the life around them on Saturday, July 24, 2010. That’s a very large concept!

The Socialization Myth and Teens

Quick:  Name a high school teen movie. Doesn’t matter when it was made. Okay, now name another, and another–again, it doesn’t matter when they were made. Now, what do they all have in common? Yes, they all have striking similarities, don’t they? The popular kids exist in them, being mean to the rest of the […]

I will never embarrass you on purpose

I recently heard a mother of a young girl openly announce to the world that she was going to be spending time alone with the daughter and her daughter’s friends, and it was her intention to embarrass the girl as much as possible and in as many ways as possible. She was actually going to […]

Word of the Year 2011

As the new year began, I embraced my annual habit of picking a “Word of the Year”. My 2009 word was ALLOW. My 2010 word was INTENT.  Each served me quite well. These each came to me quickly and I took them on with gusto. My 2011 word didn’t come as quickly… The end of […]
