Most know of our local public access channel in the county known as BKAT that we help pay for by an added charge to our local cable bills. Most are probably unfamiliar with the inner working. I recently viewed a government meeting on BKAT which was followed by a program known as DemocracyNow. The show was highlighting the law enforcement shootings around the country but more only in a gotcha style of programming meant more to damage rather than being factually presented in context. I admit that the recent national incidents are concerning but should they be broadcast here locally using our local taxpayer funds in an inflaming manner. That was my beginning question.

Walking doesn’t sound like anything difficult. And in most cases, it isn’t. But once you’ve walked for someone else, walking becomes a spiritual experience. On June 27-28, I took part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life at Bremerton High School. I’d participated in three Relays before — in Everett and on Whidbey Island. This was my first Relay in Kitsap County.

After so many decades of meetings, organizing, strategizing and hoping, it’s hard to wrap our arms around the full impact of last Friday’s historic decision. It’s joyous and emotionally overwhelming to hear that SCOTUS, the Supreme Court of the United States, has affirmed, unequivocally that we are equal under the law and that our relationships and marriages will be recognized in every one of the 50 states. For many of us, it’s a day that we could never have imagined.

Two of my sons have suffered from a fear of the water, both for good reasons. When Owen was 4, he fell in a neighbor’s pool during a birthday party. He lay face down in the deep end until an attentive grandmother jumped in to get him. It would be nearly five more years before Owen would go more than knee-deep into any kind of water, but I never stopped confronting him with the opportunity. Yes, “confronting” him. When your child is afraid of water, suggesting that he kayak, go fishing, or Heaven forbid, get in an inner tube at a water park, becomes an all-out confrontation.
