On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the nation, making this a historic victory in the gay rights movement. Before this decision was made, 37 out of 50 states (and the District of Colombia) had already extended this right to same-sex couples over the course of the years. With Massachusetts becoming the first state in the United States to allow same-sex marriage in 2004, many…Continue
Character. We all have one. Some may have a good one, while others... not so much. Based on the recent statements made by Donald Trump, his character lacks some major qualities, while Oprah has a character made of gold and free gifts.

They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime,…Continue
Of course, this is a girl’s space, but it is also Father’s Day, so let’s take this time to talk about dads...not just dads though, how ‘bout any wise male figures in our lives who have impacted our lives for the better. Maybe he is someone who is always there to make you laugh when you need it most. Maybe he is not the best listener but will always try to hear you out. Maybe he is that person who had faith in you even when you didn’t have faith in yourself. No matter what’s…Continue
I crouched down and squared my shoulders as I looked at the girl who was twenty yards across from me. I adjusted my footing in the mud as I prepared to launch myself in the cold air. Lined up and ready for the initiation of the play, we stood motionless until the ball was kicked by an opposing player to our side of the field.
