Why @Hope Is Needed to Get Homeless Mom @CareyFuller a Job Interview

Mark Horvath | June 27, 2012 | Impact
Let's face it. The economy still sucks. Finding employment is far from easy, and finding employment that offers a living wage for a homeless mom to pay for housing and childcare is close to impossible. Oh, did I say 'homeless'?!! As much as we all want to think people have...

Good Enough Does Not Lead to Greatness

Dr. David Svaldi | June 27, 2012 | Education
Too often, we fail to strive for excellence or greatness because we believe it is not probable, so why try? Or, we accept the status quo, even if it is mediocre or sub par. "Good enough" will not be adequate to solve the huge number of issues facing our nation.

The Part That Movies Play

Peter DeWitt | June 27, 2012 | Gay Voices
When our LGBT youth watch television and movies, we want them to see characters they would be proud of, not tragic figures who are surrounded by negative circumstances. They deserve to see normal, everyday characters who happen to be gay.

Boy Scouts Demand Moral and Sexual Straightness

Warren J. Blumenfeld | June 27, 2012 | Gay Voices
It seems that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) requires not merely moral straightness but sexual and gender straightness, as well, for no gay, bisexual, or transgender scouts (youth members) or scouters (adult leaders) have the right and privilege of membership in the organization.

Don't Act, Don't Tell

Mark O'Connell, L.C.S.W. | December 5, 2014 | Gay Voices
"If they smell gay on you, it's over!" This was stingingly declared by my friend, a prominent casting director. She referred to the flat rejection actors face at auditions when they "seem gay," whether the part is gay or straight, large or small, no matter how right they might otherwise be for it.

Super Soul Sunday: How To Find Your Inner Harmony

Deepak Chopra | June 27, 2012 | Healthy Living
When you're feeling troubled or lost, or simply confused about life, inner harmony is held out as a goal--a beautiful but perhaps mythical goal. How can troubled thoughts and unhappy feelings be turned into inner peace? They can't. The secret of inner harmony is that it already exists. You don't have to work for it. There is no great struggle of the soul lying in your future. Instead, inner peace is uncovered, like blowing dust off a mirror or letting the clouds pass away from the sun.

My Big Fat Sacred Gay Wedding

Jim David | June 27, 2012 | Gay Voices
I share all this not because I want to say, "Look at me, I had a big old gay wedding," but because I had never truly realized how much our family and friends really love and support us, and how much America's anti-gay marriage zealots live in an alternative reality.
