Occupy Democrats

Our country needs strong leaders who are capable of unifying us across party lines. And I think we can ALL agree that each and every one of our lives would be better without Ted Cruz in it!

Whether or not you live anywhere near Texas, if you have some unspoken-for funds you wanna dedicate to making the world a better place, ya might consider sending a few to Beto O’Rourke. Let’s #makebetohappen!

yes!!! let’s hear it for neurodiversity!!!

i am thrilled by the idea of neurodiversity awareness. this is personal for me. i’m *still* learning to love my brain for working differently and to value my own way of thinking, speaking, and being.

i am so happy to think that there could soon be a generation of neurodiverse kids who grow up learning how to use their unique brains instead of being written off as “difficult” or pumped with drugs.

From the article: Some of the first park rangers in America, weren’t rangers at all. They were Buffalo Soldiers — African Americans who served in the U.S. Army after the Civil War. They got their famous nickname from Cheyenne warriors, who likened their dark curly hair to that of buffalo hides. From 1899 to 1904, they were among the first people to work in Yosemite, Yellowstone and Sequoia national parks — more than 10 years before the creation of the National Park Service. These dedicated men protected wildlife from poaching, put out wildfires, built trails, roads, buildings and other infrastructure, and forged a proud legacy in our nation’s history. Celebrate them today on Buffalo Soldiers Day!
