…make it reign

black-panther-hr-posterIt’s no secret that this Marvel universe has pulled together quite a cast of characters—a genius billionaire, Norse god, a gifted surgeon, a brilliant scientist/hulk, and a super soldier (to name a few). Now, with “Black Panther,” they’ve found a king, and so much more.

…do your best

Today we celebrate Day of the Girl, an international holiday dedicated to the empowerment of young women around the world. Launched in 2011 by the United Nations, the day is meant to “to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.” It’s quite a powerful statement and mission to say the least.

So it might surprise you to find out that one of the top headlines today concerning girls came from the Boy Scouts of America.

The hundred plus-year-old organization will now allow girls to join, which sounds great and inclusive. Right… Read the rest of this entry
