No More Silence!

As a sexual assault survivor, I'm tired of being silenced and I won't allow that to happen anymore. It's time to share my story and scream loudly that I will not tolerate rape culture. Our country is in a terrifying place and this is my way of fighting to fix that.

Paradox: Black and White

Last night I had the privilege of listening to a podcast called Hardcore History, by Dan Carlin.

I don’t often go on tangents, at least not publicly, but today something has hit me really hard. I’m going to try to keep this organized so I don’t go chasing rabbits all over the place, but here goes. Our world feels like it’s on the brink of a revolution. With so much division, hatred,...
