Good morning to you all out there! Every week there is something new in our world. This week it’s wearing our masks out in public. I have a lovely mask with peacock feather design on it. But I hate it. I feel claustrophobic in it. It’s hard to breathe and its creepy just seeing people’s…

Good morning Tempe! Hope you are doing well today in these uncertain times. In a class I attend on Sundays, we discussed “navigating uncertainty”. My realization in the midst of the conversation was not about the uncertainty but about the navigation. What I mean by that is that all of life is pretty uncertain, if…

Good morning! Today I come to you with a very heavy heart. I feel almost speechless over the state of my country. Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse with COVID 19, divisive politics, over 100,000 deaths in our country due to this pandemic, people out of work…. The list goes on and on.…

Howdy folks! Well, it’s Tuesday once again. But of course it feels kinda like a Monday since we had yesterday off, right? Memorial Day. A wonderful way to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives for us all through military service. My grandfather, a silent screen actor, died in World War I. My father, a journalist…

Tempe Tuesday Talks – Cinco de Mayo

By SafeYouthInTempe | May 5, 2020 | Comments Off on Tempe Tuesday Talks – Cinco de Mayo

Greetings friends! It’s Cinco de Mayo and Taco Tuesday! I must admit when I moved to AZ from Philly 24 years ago, I was a real novice when it came to Mexican food. So when I first came here in August of 1996, I couldn’t get enough of it: tacos, enchiladas, burritos, huevos de rancheros…

A friend of mine from my church sent me this yesterday. It reminds me of Ellen DeGeneres’ parting words on her show each day….Be kind to one another! So…. Just a thought… As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back in to a new normal, please remember: 🛑 Some people don’t agree…
