Breast Cancer Photo Essay: Man Documents His Wife's Brave Battle With The Disease


Every day and every moment counts.



My family too had cancer. Just recently, while sitting in a airport, I opened and read a manuscript my sister was working on before she succumbed to cancer two years ago. All the memories of our journey came back. The memories never leave. You learn to live with them.



When will there be a cure for this robber of life?

Royal Mayo, Steubenville's Former NAACP President, Says 'Alleged Victim' May Not Have Been Raped


The mother of the victim supplied alcohol? When will she and others who stood by and did nothing be punished? When will those who transmitted the video on FB and other places face the law? Another lapse of our society. There were certain elements of yesteryear regarding decency and proper behavior that should come back today.



This horrible story is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come our nations way if society doesn't soon wake up and realize you can't have it all and proper behavior is paramount for a civilized society.

Supreme Court DOMA Case: Justices Sounded Skeptical Of Law's Constitutionality, Purpose


OMG! All the glaring headlines by HP! This reminds me of the headlines when HP and others thought California would surely vote for gay marriage and when they thought the SCOTUS would go against Obamcare (as many call it). Take it down a level.



The headlines and the polling isn't what governs the SCOTUS (p/s: Ca and NY and a few other states don't consist of the majority you have the middle states to count). As one missive seems to point out the SCOTUS is held in high regards when they vote the way the media wants them to, but then are berated when not. Equality should be for all let's take a deep breath and allow that to happen. If not now it will happen. It took years for slavery to end, for women to get the right to vote and for blacks to have/get equal rights. What is to happen will happen.

Rick Ross Date Rape Lyrics In 'U.O.E.N.O.' Stirs Controversy


The demise of our culture: movies: American Beauty, Spring Break, She's got to have it, Girls Gone Wild, American Pie, reality TV (housewives franchise), MTV Real World (it should be deemed sex world), Pop tarts from teenie boppers to out of control opinionated unlearned and unsophisticated talking heads. Then we wonder what is happening in society. Look at the images being broadcast to them visually and audioly.

Steubenville Rape Coverage: HuffPost Live Conversations (VIDEO)


I still think many are missing a teachable moment in all this.



Yes, a crime was committed, and yes the young girl raped has suffered a tremendous loss and will need counseling. But the teachable moment in all this is straight A students, jocks, boys, girls, pillars of a community (no matter what background) always lose and your lives forever damaged all due to a lapse in judgment. I hardly think news outlets were having sympathy (in the way many see it for the prepetrators). It was more so that young lives on both sides the victim and perpetrators have been damaged. The victim might be able to move on, however, the perpetrators will forever live with the stigma of being a "sexual predator" and "registered sex offender." Two young men who might have gotten into mischief before but nothing as serious as this. Now the young men who might have been good to average students will forever have their lives altered. Any promises that could have been never will be. If they are able to crawl from under their foolish mistake it will be a difficult crawl. That is the message that should be broadcast across the airwaves and internet nonstop.
