Rescue Is The Way to Go

Kill shelters suck, adopting from one can help to save the life of an innocent animal and give you a new best friend.

Rescue Is The Way to Go

Picture this. You’re looking to adopt a new dog or cat and you’ve found one that you think is really cute, from a high class breeder, but you want to keep looking just in case you find a pet that you are totally in love with and just HAVE to make the newest member of your family. You come to a website and find the perfect animal to add to your family. His medical information says that he’s all up to date on all his shots. It says that he was brought in as a stray, but the people at the shelter have found that he’s a very playful individual and loves to be scratched behind the ears. The animal is gentle and loves to be cuddled, and already knows a few basic commands. As much as you like the other animal that you found, you’ve totally fallen for this beautiful creature. As you reread through the website you notice there’s a date next to his name and thinking that it’s his birthday you go to read it. What is really says next to the date is TO BE DESTROYED. You realize that you have stumbled onto the website of a kill shelter. If someone doesn’t adopt this animal in the next few days, he is going to be killed so that there is more space in the shelter for other new animals that are coming in. Now you definitely feel like this animal needs to be a part of your family, not only would he be the perfect fit for your household, but you would literally be saving his life. Kill shelter suck, and because that’s even a sentence that we have to think about, this world kind of sucks. If you or anyone you know is looking to add a new animal to your family, before you look at any kind of private breeder, please, please, check kill shelters first. These animals deserve a forever home and they will love you unconditionally for the rest of their lives if you adopt them.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
