As the video says, this is about life and what makes me hurt. It was recorded in a basement session that I just hit record on. Forgive the lack of editing and raw nature of the audio but I think it matters when it is just from within. From the people ill never meet who deserve better to the tiny dancer right here at home, I love everyone and we can do this. We CAN change the world, you just have to dream.
Thanks for watching EDIT: Yes I know the gay marriage was upheld by
We, as social animals, do not typically enjoy saying goodbye. I have never met anyone who was excited to say goodbye to someone they love. What makes this inevitable event more bearable is the fact that we will be able to see them again. What happens though, when this promise of reunion is taken away? A religious person never truly experiences the feeling of losing someone with no hope of ever seeing them again, but for an atheist, losing someone to death is a very final thin
“Guilt is anger directed at ourselves – at what we did or did not do.”
~Peter McWilliams Guilt is an emotional warning sign that serves to let us know when we’ve done something wrong. It’s a self-policing mechanism that we all have. It helps us to improve our behavior, act in the best interest of society, and avoid making the same mistake twice. But it can also steal our joy, make us feel miserable, and keep us in a negative mindset. It can undermine our self-esteem and preve
I get a lot of messages, most of which are asking about my deconversion from christianity. People want to know why I left, what it meant to me when I was a christian, and why I don’t see any reason to return. For anyone who has asked, and anyone else who is curious, here is my testimony. I started life as an atheist. My parents, who were both raised as catholics, never felt the need to force religion or god upon me. I have never seen my mother or father as being faithful. As

Brittany Maynard’s Decision Brittany Maynard chose to end her life by way of assisted suicide on Saturday November 1, 2014. This is a well-known story, a story I’m sure we’ve all heard about and probably had feelings on. So why am I writing about it now? There are a few reasons why I felt the need to put my two cents worth in. This story touched me deeply. She was an incredibly strong woman, in my eyes. She chose to die with dignity rather than letting her illness take her, s
Robin Williams is one of my favorite actors of all time. I usually do not get sad when a celebrity dies, due to the lack of a personal connection. Williams’ death stung a bit more than I expected. I didn’t know him personally, only through his movies and whatever else you can find on YouTube. My favorite stuff is what he did live, like when he was on Inside the Actor’s Studio. James Lipton just let him go and I don’t know who was happier about it, Williams or the audience. Mu
“There he is! Over there! Get him! He cant go far or fast with that pack full of stupid books!
Four kids take off running through the schoolyard with signs of motion in the distance at the end of the parking lot.
‘He is gonna learn that he better stop doing all that extra credit or answering questions in class ’cause he makes us look bad.” Spoke a crackling prepubescent voice.
A quick stop, breathing hard and searching, gasping between words.
‘Stupid nerd, he is gonna ta
