Valentine’s Day Alone?
Valentine’s Day is a week away and if you’re unattached and single and that can be a bummer. I’m sure nobody wants to be alone on Valentine’s Day. I hated Valentine’s Day as a divorced single, not dating with no prospects. Well…that was until I began to celebrate my relationship with myself by learning about self-love.

Where Is The America I Knew as a Child?
Where Is The America I Knew as a Child? I grew up learning about America’s inclusiveness. It was taught in every class and attitude of the teachers (which to me as a child in America was the “world” view of America). We were founded on immigrants that came to America to seek freedom and their dreams of fortune and education. Where Is The Inclusionism That Founded America? It is even engraved on the tablet beside the Statue of Liberty. The engraving was from a poem by Emma Lazarus.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
