Whenever I find a positive story, I am bothered by the comments that invariably express anger and hostility instead of embracing the good. A pilot safely lands a compromised plane, and as people express their gratefulness, someone has to comment that she was just doing the job she was trained to do and it was nothing special.

The representation of women in the male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields has been a topic of discussion over the last several years in education, business, and government.

The birds have risen hours before me, along with many other woodland creatures beginning their morning routine with loud and vigorous gusto. The loud morning cries outside my tent are the most peaceful noises I’ve heard in months. There are no beeping alarm clocks or email notifications greeting me as I reluctantly enter a lucid state of mind and begin my daily rituals.
