My heart and mind have been quite heavy for many weeks now. I have chosen to allow myself to be stumped and have not been reading my blogs and, well, obviously writing this one. Then, on this last weekend of our societal end to summer, I am refreshed by a new blog.

This post about college pressure is what caused me to take a deep breath in and, well, breathe.

In the honor of being anti-government and therefor genuinely interested in full-disclosure, let me say I know this young woman. Well, I know her mom. I have cried with her mom, laughed with her mom, and nodded in shame, agreement, and nothingness with her mom. I love this family. I am grateful that this young woman’s family is respecting her innate freedom to live her life.
