Brevard College Student Government honors National Walkout Day. Lots of support from local citizens.

The community showed their support, with a wonderful turnout for the students at Brevard College who organized a gathering in support of #NationalWalkoutDay.  The president of student government spoke with passion and pain.  The crowd was respectful and loving.  It was a gathering of support for a change to stop tragedies of gun violence.  I don’t know how we will get there but I do believe when youth and students organize and speak up, we will.

Vagina Monologues was powerful and it was a benefit for SAFE, Helpmate

While out of town a friend contacted us and asked if we wanted to attend the Vagina Monologue play being put on as a benefit for SAFE.  Sure, we said!  I had seen clips of the play a long time ago and thought I knew what we had signed up for.  I was partially wrong.  I did not expect the power of the production.  I mean I did expect it to be powerful but not like it was. I consider myself a strong, independent woman.  I have served most of my life in jobs where I was the only...
