Trust what you see, not what you know.

Our brain takes mental shortcuts. I don't think it is possible to look and judge everything every single second of our life. When you are looking at an object, take a minute to look at the shadow. This is especially important for a...

Over 80,000 people came to the March For Our Lives in Chicago on March 24th. For those that cannot come to Chicago, people around their own towns protested and carried signs. I wanted to be part of the movement to protest for commonsense  gun laws.
