Valuing Diversity

They say a picture paints a thousand words—this is only 500. I ask you to read on with an open mind and an empathetic lens; also, to email me because I always appreciate a good discussion. To some extent, we are all probably aware that one is defined both by their experiences and by how […]

The kind of dramatic, fantastically critical cross-examinations you’d pay top dollar to see in […]

In Defense of the Offensive
