News of the Las Vegas shooting was heartbreaking, but sadly, it wasn’t shocking…because I’ve experienced gun violence in my family as well.
When I woke up that morning, it felt like just another day. Little did I know that my life would change forever.
Sometimes things happen that really aren’t planned. Losing a parent of family member can be very difficult, but there are ways to deal with it.
Growing up not being able to go to my dad for guidance has really had an impact on my life.
It’s been years since my dad was a regular presence in my life. Sometimes I can go a year without seeing him.
Growing up, Garrison Pennington’s mom worked long hours, while his dad stayed home and looked after him. This arrangement gave Pennington a more flexible view on gender roles.
According to the American Lung Association, more than 200 thousand new cases of lung cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2016.
To be honest, I even want a dad who comes with the all annoying stuff, like asking hecka questions before he lets his little girl do anything.
Him being in jail made my life harder especially since I’m a Daddy’s Girl. I got in more trouble in school, me and my mom got into more arguments, and I was just lost.
