Switching things up a little bit … this time around it’s Preacher’s Wife Wore Stilettos, Knocked Up edition.
Yep, I’ve caught the preggos. And I needed a spot to vent on how ridiculous this whole pregnancy thing is. Needless to say, I haven’t yet found “the glow.” Hopefully, it’s coming soon. But until then, expect some gripes, mood swings, wine cravings, continued attempts to balance in heels, and tales of the spousal ridiculousness.
You could do what Dianne Feinstein wants and ban all high-capacity magazines, but it’s not going to make kids any safer... I get calls from gun owners saying I went to bed safer because I have a firearm...
That's an argument, not a fact.
It IS a fact.
No, a feeling is not a fact. That’s reassurance, not evidence.
Mass shootings. As a journalist I know … there’s a time limit. There’s a certain number of days of newsworthiness. There are phases. Shock. Details. Horror. Backlash. Gun control. Backlash about gun control. Op-eds. Forgetfulness.
But this. I just don’t know how to get beyond the shock.
In many societies, marriage is a celebrated institution signifying a union between two adults and the beginning of their future together. Unfortunately, millions of girls still suffer from a vastly different marriage experience every year. Worldwide, many brides are still children, not even teenagers. So young are some girls that they hold onto their toys during the wedding ceremony. Usually these girls become mothers in their early teens, while they are still children themselves. The practice can result in profound negative consequences for the girls, their families and their entire communities.
Too Young to Wed, a multimedia partnership between the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and premier photo agency VII, seeks to raise awareness of the practice and ultimately, to end it.
While the global launch of the TOO YOUNG TO WED exhibition at the United Nations in New York was a heartfelt success, the project and the campaign supported by UNFPA and VII continues to raise awareness about child marriage and urge policymakers to enact and enforce laws that will end the practice forever. The work has only just begun.
