Dating Military: Long Distance vs PTSD

Dating is hard.  Let’s just put that out there.  It is even harder when you are young.  To me, it’s hard because you’re still trying to figure out who you are as a person.  You’re still trying to learn to love yourself while also figuring out where life will take you.  Adding another person into the mix, to love and to […]

Is meat really killing us?

I have a dilemma.  We have a dilemma. Over the weekend, a dear friend of mine who lives in Texas was out and about.  Like many of us, sometimes it’s just easier to grab food while you’re out.  It was convenient so that’s what she did. I’ll just speak for myself and say that I […]

Drinking all the “Waters”

She is fearless and fierce.  She is persuasive and potent.  She is unapologetic and unmovable.  She’s a mix of old school and new school.  She advocates for the unqualified, the poor, and for women’s rights.  She is a Trojan for all black people.
