Tomorrow is a new year! Happy 2016!! A clean slate! A fresh start! Feels so good! We are driving back to California tomorrow. It’s a long drive and I want to share a few things before we take off:

This is horribly upsetting. Eleven years old. Playing at the park. When will we see our justice system provide justice?

– Related, “To The White Parents of My Black Son’s Friends.”

– I remember hearing about The Boy in the Bubble when I was very young.

– French models now have to show a doctor’s certification that they are a healthy weight.

– Reasons people take mental health medication.

– The future is now. A new process called IVG means that same sex partners will both be able to be biological parents to their kids.

The Compassion Collective.

– The storm that will unfreeze the North Pole.

The Fallen of WWII. This is long. 18 mins. But it’s really good. First it will shock you, and then it will leave you hopeful.

– The $500 million battle over Disney’s princesses.

– 14 compliments that aren’t about appearance.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. Next week, let’s talk resolutions and plans for 2016! I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
