Discrimination ain’t what it used to be. That’s a good thing! Discrimination, especially discrimination based on race, gender, age, sexual orientation, etc, used to be prevalent and potent. Since 1964, however, the United States has made huge strides in promoting equality under its laws and a more culturally tolerant society. Again, that is a very good thing!

Nashville, TN – A homeless kitten at the riverfront I call Tiny Titan scratched me today. It didn’t break the surface of my skin. It was not quite paper-cut serious and barely visible—done only because I had tried to pet his head while he was eating from the Friskies can I’d brought him. But the “wound” cut deeper into my psyche than could be easily understood.
For the past nine months, I’d been feeding the feral cats that live along the Cumberland River in Downtown, Nashville. (For those of you who don’t live in Nashville, the downtown riverfront boasts the historic Fort Nashborough, park and concert open space areas, and the Cumberland River Greenway—a nearly 8-mile walking/jogging path—with the Titans Football Stadium in view on the other side.)

Clarksville, TN – Just for a moment, imagine with me . . .
It’s Christmas Day. A light snow is falling. You’re aware that, all over Clarksville, people are crowded in their kitchens, or frantically searching for the wrapping paper, or running to their front doors as relatives and friends arrive.
But you’re not a part of these scenarios. You’re all alone.
