    Should there be designated "protest areas" where non-violent free speech is allowed in a contained safe environment? Kids dropping F Bombs, adult women making lewd gestures, destroying property, attacking police officers. Who were those anti-Trump protestors? Are they paid anarchists, illegal immigrants with no right to protest, or concerned legal voting citizens? How did it make you feel to watch angry, violent protestors disrupting free speech campaigning under a Mexican flag? If not citizens, should they be held accountable as foreign enemies on U. S. soil?

Often, though, they feel about as appreciated as a raccoon at a picnic. Colleen O’Grady is out to change that. This mother appreciation expert says families should turn the holiday into a festival of Mom. What mom wouldn’t feel appreciated if her spouse planned a 'wow' date in which they have the romantic dinner she craves instead of going to Bud’s Barbecue, his favorite spot? And what mom wouldn’t love being told that someone else would clean the toilet or that free babysitting would be provided while she goes shopping or out with her friends? O’Grady’s small ideas will have a big impact for Mother’s Day (or every day) " This hours guest: Colleen O'Grady Licensed therapist, speaker and workshop leader.
