Freedom in Fellowship

Since the beginning of time, humans were designed to depend on one another. As we journey through life, especially our toughest seasons, we can find freedom and relief in letting our guards down and reaching out to those who love us the most.

After their 13-3 win against Lindenwood-Belleville, women’s lacrosse players Audrey Frost, a junior communications major, Maggie McDaniel, a junior history major, and Stacy Rohan, a junior journalism major, celebrate their undefeated fall season. True victory is found in fighting through life alongside loved ones. 

America’s Dire Need for Mental Health Education

With suicide being the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., a significant change is needed to increase the overall attention and care of mental health. Awareness is the first step toward healing, and implementing mental health education in schools, in all 50 states, could initiate a vital change for the mental health community. With the mid-term elections behind us and new faces in office, hopefully this will be a top priority.

Falling Out of Love With “Love”

Many spend their lives in search of love, but do we as a society understand what love truly is? Contrary to popular belief encouraged by modern culture, love is more than the initial feel-good emotions and increasing heart rate, love is a long-term commitment that often takes hard work, and it’s work worth doing.

Love is a curious dance, sometimes flowing carefree with the melodic music of life, sometimes starting and stopping like a needle bouncing across an old scratched vinyl record, but true love continues moving in rhythm between two people who are committed to the end of life’s beautiful song. 

Sustaining the Nation’s Top Free Attraction

St. Louis County residents prepare to vote Tuesday, Nov. 6, on the future of the St. Louis Zoo by voting on Proposition Z, a proposed sales tax allowing the park to make necessary repairs, replacements and additions while keeping the landmark’s admission free.

The St. Louis Zoo has made nearly every travel guide list in the nation of the top free attractions in the United States, but that key word, “free,” could change depending on how Tuesday’s proposition vote goes.

God’s Plan; When One Love Tries to Take Another

At the age of 12, I was told to say goodbye to my mom because of an unthinkable tragedy. I witnessed first hand God working in my life, healing my mom and giving us a second chance.

Your life can change in an instant, but what we can learn from this is to overcome life’s tragedies and obstacles through the strength of our support system and a hard fight.
