I Kneel to Stand

Kneel to Stand Right and wrong.  Love and hate. Respect and intolerance.   Make a choice. Speak despite fear. Take a stand.   I stand with Nike. I stand with Kap. Black Lives Matter.

Just to be Clear

Independence Day

What exactly does that mean in this year, 2017? We have spent 240 years, give or take, celebrating our freedoms and independence.

My Apology

This blog is just for me. It’s not about anybody else. These are my feelings about myself and I need to own them. I need to apologize. I need to apologize to all my human brothers and sisters for letting you down. I just turned 41. I wasn’t blind. I wasn’t unaware. I didn’t think...
