My Open Letter To Fancy Water Park Moms

While on vacation last week, my Mom, sister and I took five kiddos to Venture River Water Park in Eddyville. It was the perfect day... Party-cloudy, mid 80's and just the right amount of people. After the first round of water slides, we took in the lazy river for some much needed down time. It was there in that inner-tube that I saw something puzzling to me... A woman who looked flawless. She looked like she was straight out of a JC Penny's swim catalog. Wait. Why didn't she look like a drowned rat like we all did? Then it hit me... She so fancy. So, to that Mom, here's a letter.

How Caitlyn Jenner Has Changed My Way Of Thinking

Like millions of others around the country, I just finished watching the ESPY's. Contrary to popular belief, I actually watch for the awards, not just to see if Kevin Love took a date. And, to be honest, like many others, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the choice of Caitlyn Jenner winning the Arthur Ashe Award For Courage. I just felt that there were other people who had been thru so much more than her and it really bothered me. I was wrong for thinking that. And, after watching her speech, I realize that I may never know the amount of courage it took for her to finally live her life freely.

But, I will have to say, what I've seen regarding the show and her winning is disturbing. There's nothing like a good Facebook feed scroll to really make you question humanity. I wonder... Do you really feel all of that hatred that you're saying? Do you have any idea what damage your words could really be doing? Do you care?
