It's rare for anyone in Hollywood to speak about someone's exemplary conduct on the set, an environment that's usually treated as off-limits, since how the sausage is made is best left unexamined. But some 50 years after working with Andy Griffith, Ron Howard's remembering the spirit of that generous work environment shows how lasting an impression such professionalism, joy and kindness can have on a young person.
Sometimes, I am the first black woman that someone has interacted with, dated or developed a friendship with. At times, I am that "one" that surprised you. And there are times where it doesn't matter who or what I am, because you knew who I was the instant you saw me.

This week I will not only be celebrating America, the land of the red, white, and blue. Instead, I will be celebrating myself, my journey, and the fact that, over the past five years, I've gone from fearful victim to fearless survivor!

Ten minutes at a time is my slow-and-steady way of being fearless. Little by little I chip away at a goal, safely, somewhat risk-free. Do I take the world by storm? Have I ever been an overnight success? No and no. But slow and steady is better than not at all, and so I inch along.
This is your life. Commit to living it passionately. Don't let the world dictate what that means for you. Show up. Show out. And rise to the occasion every single time.

The dust kicked up by Ann-Marie Slaughter's essay continues to swirl around the Internet. A key part of the current debate is, of course, Sheryl Sandberg and the heartfelt talk she gave at Davos.
I play the "what if" games. What do I do if she gets hurt? What do I do if she has to hurt somebody? What do I do if she doesn't come home at all? In my mind, I have tended my wife's wounds, both physical and psychic. I have eulogized my wife and raised our yet-to-be-born child.
