    Dear God, This is not an easy thing to write. A very large part of me wonders if I’m writing from a place of selfishness rather than from a place a forgiveness, strength, and love, which is where I hope most of my open letters come from. In the past year or so, I revisited ...

    Fear is one of the most unique emotions I have noticed over the course of my life. Sort of like anger, but at the same time, different. Like anger, it can take over a person. Unlike anger, fear is the only emotion that dares you to try and push past it. Fear wants you to overcome it ...

The inability of young Americans to tolerate opposing viewpoints has dealt grueling consequences to today’s political climate.

    Racially driven hate crimes are constantly being justified by the excuse of fear. Every time I hear of a racially charged crime that’s taken place, I get overwhelmed with anger, sadness, and fear for the future of my own children and this world.
