too many thoughts

I'm just an ordinary woman searching to expand my mind and share my opinions. Typical, I know.

Fair warning: you may tear up after reading this letter from 10-year-old Sophia Bailey Klugh to President Obama about her two dads and his response.

So where’s that evidence that two same-sex parents are bad for children?

Crying like a baby over this, glad to know my vote for you wasn’t wasted, President Obama.

Until 1984, the Olympic program for women did not include running events longer than 1,500 meters, in part because of the outdated belief that they were too “fragile” for such distances. In the inaugural women’s marathon, Joan Benoit put an end to such talk as she raced away from her chief rival, Norway’s Grete Waitz. Spectators lined the 26.2-mile route to cheer on the competitors, the exception being a three-mile stretch along the Marino Freeway that was closed to the public.

Complex Mind

I wish you believed me when I said the complexity of your mind is one of the things I find most astonishingly beautiful about you.
