Realistic Expectations

Written by Lori R.
Coming from a family with a strong work ethic and more than its share of over-achievers, I have felt “less than” on more than one occasion. After pondering this idea that one has to achieve a certain status, I have decided that it is probably not other people who have unrealistic expectations of me but only my own expectations. How does one measure success? And where do you feel you are on this scale? People tend to measure themselves against other people in their lives: friends, family members, classmates. Even…

When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade

Written by Kristi C.
One of my fondest memories from childhood was sipping lemonade on my grandmother’s porch during summer with a cool breeze. She made her lemonade from fresh squeezed lemon juice and simple syrup she created in a kettle on her stove. Her favorite saying was, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” It was a saying that my grandparents lived by. When you hear their story, you will understand.

Written by Lori R.
Mother Toya Graham’s act of pulling her son out of the Baltimore riots has drawn both praise and criticism.

As mothers we are to teach our children how to be productive and happy citizens. But what if we are…

Happy Bluesman Down

Written by Yolanda F.
Assuming necessity is in fact the mother of invention; wouldn’t you think that depression could actually be an opportunity to find actual happiness? The fact that B.B. King, perhaps the most famous blues musician, just died May 14, 2015 at the old age of 89 and lived a fabulous life of musical acclaim, makes me wonder. Did he begin playing the blues because he was actually depressed? Or was he simply reporting his thoughts and reactions to his surroundings and the natural progression of his life? Interviews and photos of…

Baltimore is Burning

Written by Kristi C.
Following the arrest and subsequent death of Freddie Gray, a large protest was held in Baltimore on April 25th. Following Gray’s funeral on April 27th, the protests turned violent with the unrest escalating into rioting, looting, and the burning of local businesses. This violent turn culminated in the declaration of a state of emergency and the deployment of the Maryland National Guard. A curfew was put in place, school trips were delayed, and public venue events were cancelled. The people of Baltimore were filled with fear, with good reason. Fear…
