Off With The Headf

Re-examine all you have been told. Dismiss what insults your soul. ~Walt Whitman I was raised in a sterile environment, a suburban, white, Catholic petri dish enclosed in an adiabatic autoclave where I was shielded from the influx of those radical concepts held by people ‘not like me’.
