Rape Is Ok.. Buying Candy Calls For Death.

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. -John 4:7

Rape Is Ok.. Buying Candy Calls For Death.

Brock Turner, David Becker, John Enochs, Austin James Wilkerson. What do all these names have in common ? They are white males who raped young women and got away with it. They got away with little or no jail time.

Then we have Briseira Torres, female, a United State citizen in Arizona who did not have her papers handy and was thrown in jail for 4 months. Kelley Williams-Bolar a woman who was sent to jail for 10 days because she did not send her children to the correct school district. Eric Garner, male, killed by police for selling loose cigarettes. Dante Parker, male, after being stunned by a taser multiple times was still shot and killed. Eric Harris ,male, officer who was taking him in custody “mistook” his gun for a taser. What do all these people have in common ? They are colored people who lost their lives or spent more time in jail than the men above.

Explain to me why the men who damaged those young ladies are out in the world living their life because they got away with it. Please tell me why these families have to mourn their loved ones because they “looked suspicious.” This is ridiculous and is getting out of hand. Everyday we see more and more injustice to our colored people and it is not right. It needs to STOP. Why did the white men above get to go on with their lives and get it taken off their record, but the women who sent her children to another school system now has that on her record? Every year we hear the same thing and i’m sick of it. The officers and judges are supposed to have discretion. They are suppose to be able to tell right from wrong. SO tell me, how is it right to rape a girl and only get away with probation but wrong to have your papers on you at all times and get 4 months of jail time.

But then again the judge always ends up saying it is not fair that the white males’ futures are going to be messed up. But it is fair for 5 children to lose their father even though he was tased multiple times.

This is wrong and we know it yet we do not do anything. Instead of helping our nation we put a racist to run our country.

Ask yourself how you would feel if that was your daughter, your sister, your wife. How would it feel that those men go away with it. Then put yourself in the shoes of the 5 children who lost their dad. Even after they already had control over him they felt the need to kill him.

This is not just a rant. These are facts our system is broken and we need to help fix it.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
