We sit across from each other at the table. The restaurant hustle and bustle has faded as we look at each other with saddened, tired eyes. I wonder where the love has gone, we used to be so full of it. Was it the kids, the bills, the routine? What killed our affection, our intimacy? I think I know, though I donai??i??t feel safe to speak of it. Secrets. We have them. Maybe my secret is the destructive one, in fact I know it is. Iai??i??m sure you have secrets too, but if you do, youai??i??ve hid them well. I donai??i??t blame you, my secret has been killing me and also keeping me alive for a long time. Decades in fact.

In My Opinion: Malala Yousafzai vs. Kylie Jenner

We need to talk. About the Kardashians. As I was perusing Facebook this afternoon I saw a post that a friend who I usually consider to be pretty enlightened shared on their facebook wall. The text of the post, as delivered by a group titled ai???Expand your Consciousnessai???, is as follows: ai???Malala Yousafzai & Kylie Jenner. Both turned 18 recently. One was given a Ferrari and spent thousands on facial modification. The other was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, survived a gunshot to the face by the Taliban due to corruption in her country, and opened a school for Syrian refugees to combat the lack of education for youth around the world. Whatai??i??s upsetting is the media is only covering one of these stories as ai???breaking newsai???. Share the post to spread real love and inspiration across the youth of the world. Last thing to note, Malala is infinitely more beautiful!ai???
