Diversity and Hope

Dawn ThompsonDiversity, Empowerment

We’ve come a long way… We haven’t come far enough… Both of these statements convey my feelings, and I’m sure many other people. I wasn’t around when our world became so polarized, hating different races, but I believed it began way before America was born, and since America was birthed out of peoples from various countries, we are bound to … Read More

As we set goals for ourselves for the New Year, let’s remember to pass this same skill on to our children. Start them young how to be productive individuals. What goals are important to them?

Snow Days/Heat Days

Segalo MediaBlog, Children, Parenting

I have the type of job that when the weather gets icy, I can usually work from home. It turns into a very productive day, because I’m not interrupted by others and can get a lot accomplished. It’s also a time that I can throw dinner on, throw in a load of laundry and make sure my son is on-task … Read More

Even if it’s only stretching, doing some sit ups or walking … Read More
