‘Microaggressions’ And ‘Trigger Warnings,’ Meet Real Trauma

‘Microaggressions’ And ‘Trigger Warnings,’ Meet Real Trauma.

Kirk:
Damn it, Bones, you’re a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can’t be
taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They’re the things we carry with
us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose

I would like to say at the outset that I have always been a great admirer of the music of David Bowie, who has been a huge influence upon my own life and creative endeavours.

I am sad to report that Colin Grainger passed away, yesterday the 16th March 2015. One can only begin to imagine the pain his family and friends are feeling. Colin was a former Chairman of Freedom2Choose, soon after our inception in 2007. Tributes have poured in to celebrate the life of a man who fought for the freedom of others, these are typical.

 

Will miss you @CaptainRanty RIP Farewell Colin, you will go down on the right side of history

RIP @CaptainRanty – A long time good friend to me. An original Libertarian.
