March WOMAN Madness: Where My Ladies At?

It is March Madness. And I’m mad.

This is the season of bracket pools taking over the office talk, CBS Sports and ESPN dominance of the  Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. Many of my guy friends speak of nothing but spectacular shots, buzzer beaters and inappropriate calls by the referees.

Do YOU know about International Women’s Day? Month? !


March 8 is declared International Women’s Day and us W-O-M-E-N have a whole month (MARCH!) to highlight our roles and accomplishments, speak of our injustices, and just be ourselves.

A Kairos Moment : Leadership & Purpose in Today's New World

[img_assist|nid=77527|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=63]I’m looking for a leader, are you qualified or looking? As a new Bostonian resident working in a new field, the non-profit sector, it’s been a difficult task sorting through all the applicants.

Nonviolence or Nonexistence

[img_assist|nid=72462|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=75|height=100]I walked uphill on Auburn Avenue in August 2008 draped in sweat and a smile, in the direction of the Martin Luther King National Historic Site. I believe it is a path that every American, every race should walk.

My Human Rights Can't be Purchased

My human right can't be purchased this holiday season because they are priceless. As I shop at the mall this December, I’m being more consumer savvy and more careful with my buys due to the economy or so called ‘recession’.  But I still can’t seem to buy that  ‘hot item’ called human rights. It’s not on sale, no corporations sell it, I can’t even go to the thrift stores to buy the hand me downs.
