Again…We Love Harder.

My son feels the discrimination at the very core of his being and is both scared and appalled.

A 15-year-old with more compassion than the men caught celebrating on camera in front of the world.

Again, I ask, is this the world we now live in? Where privileged white males hold power over others

and use that power against them under the guise of Christianity.

A world where healthcare is necessarily considered a fundamental right but, certainly could and should be considered a privilege with attainable access to it a probability.
