Take Down The Confederate Flag EVERYWHERE!

June 23, 2015
We all know moms and educators like Sharonda Singleton-Coleman. At school she was running "cheek to cheek" with the students on her track team, pushing and motivating them to be the best they can be. At home she was being an amazing mother: raising teens, loving them, praying for them, smiling, and, (of course) hiding the TV remote so they didn’t have too much screen time. While this mother of three gave life and nurtured so many, her life was taken when she and eight others were gunned down in a vicious act of racial terrorism, the kind that has for too long been glorified by the iconography of the Confederate flag. It's time to take the confederate flags down. No child should lose their mother to racial terrorism. All families should be protected by our nation's promise of liberty and justice for all.

Safe and Private Isn't an Option

June 16, 2015
I don't have to tell any parent that, once you have a child in your life, privacy goes out the window. From the minute baby can walk, nowhere is sacred.
