Do This Survivor A Favor
Don’t Go Komen Pink For Me

October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is a tough month for me and many other informed survivors. This year, however, the pink forces are arriving earlier than ever. As an almost thirteen-year breast cancer survivor, it would seem that the colorful efforts by Susan G Komen and other groups would warm my heart.

Komen Doesn’t Speak For Me

It isn’t yet October but the ‘pink’ breast cancer awareness folks are already ramping up their fundraising frenzy. This most likely leads you the believe that, as an almost thirteen year cancer survivor, I am enthused about the varied events, products, and stories coming out of the breast cancer money machine.

Like a Voice Crying Out in the Wilderness

The old philosophical question asks, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it still make a sound?” Obviously, whether or not anyone sees a tree fall or hears it crash to the ground, there is an appreciable effect.

Abortion and Class Discrimination

When we think of discrimination we often leap to an image of race. Yes, race discrimination is certainly an atrocity and we see it often – even in the choice of location for abortion facilities and the percentages of those affected. That abortion centers are primarily located in poorer, black neighborhoods has been documented. After all Margaret Sanger’s intent was...

politically correct

Are We Politically Correct Like Pilate?

As Holy Week begins, we might ask ourselves if we are a part of the ‘go along to get along’ crowd like Pilate. Do we simply sit back in our comfortable haven or are we advocates for the less fortunate? Do we join in the Cross or wait, selfishly, for Easter joy?
