Where Is The Kindness? The Headlines Project

Will Leffert Headlines Project

Where is the kindness? This holiday season, beyond the debate of a war on Christmas, Christians (who compose about 70% of the US populace as of writing this) are supposedly celebrating the birth of their savior. A savior who professed love for all, and abhorred judgement. So, I ask again, where is the kindness? We’re seeing a distinct lack of it …

Depression Isn’t Simple: The Headlines Project

Depression isn’t simple. It never is. True, deep depression hurts you in ways that most people can’t even fathom. Sure, the average person may feel down on occasion.

Not All Pets Have Fur: The Headlines Project

Will Leffert Headlines Project

I will admit, I am a bit more biased than usual in this issue, but I think most can agree that my position is valid. Recently, a new IL law was passed protecting cats & dogs from abuse by neglect in living conditions (you can read Senate Bill 125 here). While that sounds great in theory, it has numerous flaws. The …
