Central Florida Parent Center – Nonprofit of the Month

I've chosen Central Florida Parent Center as the March nonprofit of the month. I and my family have become aware of CFPC when we needed assistance and advice for my daughter who is struggling in school due to medical and mental health conditions.

Jimmy Carter Speaks Out On Racism Toward President Obama

I rarely write about political topics on my blog, but when I heard former President Jimmy Carter speak about the undertones of racism in the opposition against President Obama I had to write about this.
