3/22/2017 Message: Your (Not So) Secret Identity

Identities are funny things.  On the one hand, we’re quick to dismiss certain characteristics of people because of their identity.  Thing about the class clown when they act up in class.  How many times do people dismiss jokes they make because “that’s just how Joe is”?  At the other hand, … Continue reading
