Philly Libraries Close Because You Don’t Care

Library BooksFellow local Philly blogger Josh Kruger turned me onto this article originally posted on Philly.com: Budget crisis shutters libraries at 2 top schools.  In  short, because of yet again more budget cuts, two Philadelphia school’s need to close their frequently used libraries due to not having the funds to maintain a librarian.  Now before you read on, you need to understand that if there is one group or generation I’ve always felt needed the most support, it’s our youth.  They have the least amount of say in what happens to their futures and therefore I feel it is our goal as a society to ensure they have the most possibilities and opportunities that we can provide.

I was interviewed for an award…

Liebster AwardI won an award!! Well sort of…

Throughout the wonderful world of blogging, much like and e-mail chains or the social media “1 Like=1 Prayer” pictures, there are awards that get passed around in the blogger world as well.  This one is sort of cool because it lets my readers (all of you lovely people) learn a little more about me!  So with that being said, I want to thank and shout out to my nominator’s blog: Diary of a Gay Person of Color (and no it’s not the recent sports guy who admitted he was not only gay but also black!).  So thank you for the nomination it’s totally awesome.

Now onto the rules of the award: Continue reading
