The series is called between the lines.

Does a womans choice to marry and motherhood limit….


Thursday Favorite Things…

When Trayvon was killed, my husband and I were in Florida for a book- signing event. We stayed with my parents. The first news report we saw showed a photo, of a very tall person with missing teeth. The reporter said the person had been accused of burglaries, kicked out of school for fighting, was under the influence of drugs and he attacked a neighborhood watch captain who then shot his attacker in self-defense.
