Joy

by John Byrd

In the past  year or so I've gained these "luxuries". These items that we deem as great enough to pay a large sum of money for.  A 2016 vehicle,  a new phone,  an expensive dog, a wedding, a college education,  and high end clothing.  Most people  my age who have come from areas similar to mine don't get to see these things until their mid thirties  and quite  frankly many never see them at all.  At the end the day I'm blessed and grateful for all of these things. There is a saying that money can't buy happiness. I've come to believe that many people don't understand  what it means. We'll say this then follow it up with actions that would suggest otherwise. We'll  place our sense of self or happiness in something tangible or a title.  

I could honestly say none of these luxuries  provide me with complete happiness.  They help me create  great memories and show what i can obtain,  but tell you nothing about my inside  condition.  Wealth is in the mind and spirit.  True  unbreakable  happiness  which can be noted as joy only comes from one place.  It comes from the God above.  No I'm not being over spiritual  or cliché.  Instead  I'll approach  this statement from a logical standpoint.  How can we  receive joy from things that can be taken away from us at any moment.  This creates a condition leading to the idea that without this piece  of material you cannot be happy.  The human desire continually grows  as you begin to gain this wealth or capital. You can never truly be satisfied with what you have. Due to human nature that's just not how we work. God never changes and will always  be there even when you can't see or hear him.  Everything we receive is from him and is his.  As I continue to accrue this collection of "luxuries" and as I see others noticing them I just always  want to reiterate this notion and strong belief of mine.  Thank you for reading and hopefully you'll share an experience similar to mine so you can relate.

Medical Marijuana & Me

Still Alice & The Necessity of Alzheimer's Advocacy

by Brittney Williams

Last week, I sat alone in a back row in the Michigan Theater, watching a special screening of Still Alice that was put together by the Alzheimer’s Association. Still Alice, which is based on a book of the same name, tells the story of a Columbia professor who is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50. When I found out about the movie about a year ago, I remember being elated to hear that finally, a story focusing on early-onset Alzheimer’s was being told. Often, Alzheimer’s is shown in media as a disease that only affects older people, or sometimes not even as a disease at all, but as a normal part of the later stages of aging, which it is not. My experience—and the experiences of millions of others, who have loved ones diagnosed at younger ages than usual—tells a very different story. My mother was 49 when diagnosed, and 54 when she passed away in 2013.
