  • It’s what’s on the inside that counts

    Maybe I’ve become more sensitive after having my head shaved, but lately there seems to be lots of news about young women being ostracized because of their hair, or lack of it.
    Last week, there were two stories in the national news involving schools that attempted to suspend or turn away young girls basically because of their hair.
