    All Around

    My Heart Breaks For Trayvon Martin And His Family

    I know others in this group have recently written about this story. It is outrageous that nothing has been done to the man who shot Trayvon Martin. He was unarmed walking in a gated community and because the neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, felt he was acting suspicious...

    This Kind Of Ignorance Just Burns Me Up~

      Lately on EP my friends and I have fallen victim to small minds, warped senses of reality and the brand of vintage intolerance, hatred and total ignorance that gets people hurt and killed and has for centuries. This is to be expected because the "old path" that we have chosen...
