The following (below) is the text from a Facebook post I created last month after the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. It’s incredible to me that it has been less than a month since that shooting happened, and it isn’t even the most recent horrifying mass shooting to make national news  […]

Note: this post started as a status update on my personal Facebook page, but I decided to share it here as well. I mean, it’s 800 words long. There has to be something worth sharing in there, right? May you find your “JT Moment” this week, too. 🙂 ******* I am supposed to be writing  […]

This is a tough one. As you may have noticed, I don’t do much in the way of politics or even social activism on my blog.

You may have heard that we’ve had a bit of snow here in Atlanta, accompanied by no small amount of chaos and controversy. My family got off easy on Tuesday: just three and a half hours in the car with our preschoolers to get through what is normally a 20-minute drive. Sounds bad, but many  […]
