You have the power to reverse the damage your predecessor's actions have caused for women like me who seek services from Planned Parenthood. I know I am not alone, Mr. Foley. There are thousands of us with an actual need for Planned Parenthood's services in mid-Missouri.
History will be written, and instead of arguing amongst each other about what side of history we stand on, it is better to stand for making sure future generations only have to expand progress instead of inheriting current issues as they are.
Of course, newsstand magazines can be expected to put attractive -- impossibly attractive, computer-altered -- models on the cover. But with reader reactions being what they are, maybe it's time to reconsider how our community is framing itself.
For those who remember when the first towers fell on 9/11, there is an unnerving feeling of déjà vu about the Paris attacks.
We have a duty to ensure that each and every student on Duke's campus feels safe, and loved, and protected. And only then, only when we have achieved a goal that is so fundamental and essential to lives of Duke students, can we call the Duke Community "a community of integrity and principles."
In his endless quest for political correctness and to prove that we can find consensus if we search hard enough, Obama has expressed with the most striking clarity yet his failed worldview and chief political strategy. We must be deliberate about how we articulate and defend our values.

Missouri's anti-choice legislature, in consistently chipping away at reproductive rights, has taken a decidedly different approach in attacking reproductive health access. Now these same legislative extremists are playing politics with teaching and research at the University of Missouri.
What has erupted proves the case of the continued need to build cultural competencies across Yale and indeed across all campuses and communities. We don't have to, don't warrant this. But should we all not embrace that awesome challenge we may forfeit the future that is ours to own and make better.
Sometimes a book drops in your lap like a miracle you didn't even know you needed. That's what happened with QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology edited by Raymond Luczak and published by Squares & Rebels Press.
