Why Are 1000 Children Being Detained in a Holding Facility in Arizona?

There is a story weighing heavily on my heart that I would like to share. I had other plans for posts to share with you, but as a mother I simply cannot ignore this story. It’s important and necessary to take notice of news like this, but let me warn you it is not pretty. I’m not sure that this news has really filtered out to the rest of America, but here in Arizona we are dealing with a humanitarian crisis and it involves children....more

The Day My Third World Self Put My First World Self In Its Place

I was washing a few dishes and enjoying the cold water gushing out from our faucet when from out of the blue, I was reminded of those years in the Philippines when we had a water crisis and some form of water rationing was done in most urban areas. I don't know why I had the thought, but I was suddenly reminded of those days when I would turn on the faucet and nothing would come out of it.  So then I thought to myself, "Oh, I'm using too much water; better turn the faucet down and save some water!" ...more

The Art of Being a Woman in a Male-Dominated Field

I manage employees, most of which are male, and I am managed by males. I can faintly hear my feminist sisters in the background cheering for me, and I usually wear these facts like a badge of honor on my chest. I am proud of this, but if we are being honest, it is no walk in the park....more
