That's an easy, simple truth. It can't be politicized, analyzed or reduced to anything other than what it is: reality. My brother is dead because of a gun. You can lump him into a statistic. You can break down the circumstances. But at the end of the day, what can I really say that will call you to action?

I'd feared feeling things I'd lost for years. Regret seemed so much more powerful to me at the time. In one year, I'd face all of the things that I thought defined who I was - my husband and my grandmother, who I loved dearly.

Ottilia Anna Maunganidze

In seeking to dismantle racism, it is imperative to first acknowledge that manifestations of racism don't happen just because of a few social miscreants. They occur because the environment of racism nurtured and still promoted by a culture rooted in apartheid didn't end with the casting of ballots.

Our basics are our basics. What we choose to add on is up to us but each of those choices may mean saying no, or pressing pause, on something else. Whether we know it or not, we're prioritizing. Our lifestyle is a direct reflection of how we prioritize these choices.

If you are limiting your freedom due to fear of someone else's violent behavior, then you need to find a way to leave the situation. Again, it is you who are trapping yourself by being in a relationship with someone who verbally or physically violates you for your choices.

ISIS, Fear, and the Freedom of Speech

Geoffrey R. Stone | Posted 12.22.2016 | Politics
Geoffrey R. Stone

In recent weeks, two of the legal scholars I most admire -- Cass Sunstein and Eric Posner -- have independently called for possible limitations on the scope of First Amendment protection in light of the dangers posed to the United States by online radicalization messages directed at Americans. Although I certainly understand the concerns driving these suggestions, it is essential that we resist the temptation to restrict our most fundamental freedoms in moment of panic. This is not to say that our nation's security is not important or that preventing terrorist attacks is not a critical goal. But it is to say that this is not an appropriate way to protect ourselves.

Americans, Critical Thinking, and Ignorance

John W. Traphagan | Posted 12.18.2016 | Religion
John W. Traphagan

Ignorance isn't a monopoly of any one political party, religion, or interest group. Rather, it's a product of an educational system that has failed for quite some time to produce people with critical thinking skills.
