Prince Harry acknowledgment he sought therapy a good example for other young men

Recently I was awakened by a notification from my phone. Prince Harry admitted to seeking treatment for his mental health to better cope with the death of his mother, Princess Diana. That week, Facebook was filled with reports of Prince Harry “admitting” and “revealing” this fact. I was happy to hear the news, especially in regard to a male public figure. But I couldn’t help but feel like I was reading a scandalous tabloid report, with headlines like that of the Daily Mail: “Prince Harry admits he was close to a breakdown over the death of Diana as he reveals he saw a therapist.”

Disparaging our Mexican neighbors makes no sense

Whatever your feelings about President Donald Trump, we should all take offense at his outrageous and crude rants when it comes to Mexico and Americans of Mexican descent. Our southern-door neighbor was among the first nations on earth to order their national flag at half-mast on 9/11. They are our third largest trading partner next to Canada and China. Over a million Americans are retired and live in Mexico, and millions more vacation there every year, enjoying a lifestyle the average Mexican can’t afford. Almost without exception the Mexican people welcome Americans to their country with friendship and kindness. We are tied to Mexico culturally, economically, geographically and increasingly by family.
