A Call To Action

With a child sexually abused every 9 minutes, there is no greater urgency than now to take a stand.

It's time to be proactive instead of reactive. It's time to believe survivors and to listen and learn from their experiences. It's time to practice prevention methods that protect children. And it's time to support organizations who fight to protect kids from abuse. These acts build a defense against sexual violence so that all kids may experience the safe and happy childhood they deserve.

Because I Looked Into the Dark

Have you ever been inspired by a documentary? Maybe to change your diet, produce less plastic waste, or live in a tiny house? My life took a turn after seeing such a film, but what I was inspired to do required looking deep into a dark, dark place I thought I'd never visit.
