Come On, Disney

Congrats Disney, Cinderella just opened and I must say it was very good. It exceeded my expectations. The score, set, and casting was great. I absolutely loved the step sisters. Cinderella's dress was beautiful, and every one of Lady Tremaine's costumes amazed me. I know the story was all about being kind to others, even when they are not deserving of it. And that the ending was to leave us feeling all warm and fuzzy because Cinderella finally got her happy ending. But that wasn't the thought that was in my head as I left the theater.

Christians and Sexual Assault

There have been some unfortunate events occur at my dear Christian college. I recently read articles about a sexual assault that occurred either on campus, or close by, (details were not specific) and the incident involved ACU students. Yes, sexual assault happens on Christian campuses, but sadly, the reactions of the campus are not as “Christian” as one would think. Usually, most people would side with the victim and support him or her. But with this case, for instance, there were a lot of comments blaming the victim and accusing them as being a “liar” and “wanting attention”.

This is NOT okay. As Christians, we should not be going around trying to blame the victim for this incident. It certainly is not the their fault for being attacked or raped. It’s not because they were wearing something provocative and were “asking for it”. They were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. And sadly, that’s how it goes.

My university life group got together to discuss these occurrences because it is actually a pretty big issue here.  We talked about why we think sexual assault is a big problem, why no one talks about it or confesses that it has happened to them, and what we need to do to help end it here.

Traveling With Your Pup

Traveling with your dog can be a great experience. When you remember to pack everything. You may be thinking, "What all do you need? Grab scoop of food, a leash, and the dog and you're good to go, right?" WRONG. Just like you need a suitcase, your pup should also have a travel bag. What all do you need in this said travel bag? Here's a run down of what I pack for Sunny.
