I stand against any protest that is violent no matter the cause. It seems we as a country have been walking backwards for some time and now we have stooped to an all time low. Whenever someone goes on a shooting spree we say they are mentally ill. I say people who feel compelled toContinue reading “Where do YOU stand?”

2020 is now a memory. Gone but will never be forgotten. 2020 was home to illness, death, unemployment, homelessness, broken hearts and so much unanticipated anxiety, depression and a growing number of suicide attempts and completions.
