WCW meets WSW

Hey all! Last week had me MIA again, because of a terrible case of strep throat – or as I like to call it: mini mono. Because it knocked me flat out! And I am not entirely healed up yet, so this is going to be a quick, but oh-so-needed shout-out post going out to… […]

Standing up

ICYMI: On Monday, Elin Errson, a 21-year-old student in Sweden stood up on an airplane, and refused to sit down until action was taken.

While the courts did not rule it a hate crime, Scott knows that he was attacked because he is gay. Anyone who knows Scott will already know why […]

#WorldSavingWednesday

This has been one of those weeks when the world seems pretty hopeless. Actually, the past 18 months have been pretty bleak for anyone who cares about human rights, multiculturalism, or democracy as we’ve come to know it in North America. It’s been depressing to turn on the news for fear of what’s next. And […]
