How is it possible, that you look up and see darkness, you look down and see same darkness. You look around, the sun is up, looks like it should be bright but somehow, you can’t connect with the light or brightness around you.
What would this be called? A dark space in your mind?
… a space of hopelessness?
… a helpless state or a time of reckoning?
… why call this a dark space? It is not really but lacks color and feelings Continue reading Staring into the ‘Dark’

Cheddar’s in Murfreesboro, Tennessee disavowed server and her offensive Snapchat
Chelsea Mayes and four of her friends headed to a Murfreesboro Cheddar’s location after Sunday’s church service. The 22-year-old thought she’d had a good meal, but afterward her server’s hateful Snapchat rant went viral, the details of the hate-filled posting were passed around the Murfreesboro community, and Mayes started feeling a little differently about her dining experience.
One of the victim’s, Chelsea Anne responded to the hate crime by showing remarkable Christian charity. In a Facebook post titled Racism Still Lives, she shared her experiences
The offensive posting was laced with the ‘n’ word all through
Mayes took to social media to respond in epic fashion.
“Yesterday this photo of a Murfreesboro Cheddars employee started circulating on social media. Being as though I was lucky enough to be one of the ‘n—-rs’ she speaks of, I feel it’s only necessary to give my view!”
The hate-fueled server was actually friends with one of Mayes’ group, all of whom were members of the college choir at the local First Baptist Church. Mayes said they left a generous tip and didn’t find out about the racist post until a friend texted her about it later in the day.
“You never truly know the person behind the smile. No matter how much love and joy you spread, there will always be someone with hate in their heart towards you, regardless if it’s in your face or when you leave. It’s up to you how you handle it,” Mayes wrote.
“I am personally extremely proud of myself. If this had of been Chelsea a couple years ago, Cheddars [would] have been flipped upside down. But now I just feel sorry for her.
“This ‘n—-r’ is pretty nice.
“This ‘n—-r’ actually enjoyed your company.
“This ‘n—-r’ is praying for you.
“This ‘n—-r’ loves you and there’s nothing you can do about it!”
Afterward, the server was fired.
Mayes, responded with a post of her own when she found out about the racist Snapchat post later in the day.
“When you use slander against other demographics, that shows you are not inclusive and that’s not a work environment that you want to create,” said Monica Wentworth, director of Lipscomb University’s Career Center.
Wentworth said in the last five years, social media has been at the forefront of the conversations she has with students.
“We are always a brand. We are always a representative of who we work for, and if you want to represent that company, use good words that represent them,” Wentworth said.
Lee Greer, president of the management group that owns Cheddar’s in Murfreesboro, sent the following statement:“We, ourselves, were shocked and offended after learning one of our servers had posted comments on social media that were hurtful and derogatory.”
“This type of behavior will never be tolerated in our restaurants. The server was immediately suspended and ultimately terminated after our internal investigation.”
Mayes said she was glad the two-faced served got axed.
“If there’s no repercussion for these actions, it’s as though they’re saying it’s OK for these actions to happen again. I don’t have any ill will toward her. If that were the case, I’d be no better than her”.
“Life is too short to be mad. If I stay mad, I’m not going to be hurting anybody but myself.”
At 22 weeks in that Sierra Yoder’s second pregnancy took an unexpected turn.
“When we went in to do the gender reveal ultrasound I could tell something was wrong.” – According to Sierra,
Doctors in Ohio broke the news that the son she was carrying had an encephalocele — also known as cranium bifidum — a condition where parts of the brain protrude through openings in the skull creating sac-like growths. In short, the neural tubes hadn’t developed properly during fetal development, and parts of the baby’s brain were outside the skull.
She shared her reaction “I started bawling immediately … I didn’t think he would make it.”

Sierra and her husband Dustin were told by doctors in Ohio that there was “no chance he was going to live. He won’t talk. He won’t move. He won’t know when he’s hungry. He’ll be a shell.”
And as a result, these parents spent more of Sierra’s pregnancy planning for their baby’s funeral rather than his birth.
Despite this, when it came time for Sierra to terminate the pregnancy, she simply couldn’t go through with it. Keeping him at least meant getting the chance to meet him before saying goodbye.
She carried her son to full term, and little Bentley Ross Yoder was born right on cue on 31 October, 2015.
According to the Post, they had only one outfit for him — “one onesie — light blue with stars — and matching pants and warm, fuzzy socks.” They also had every reason to expect that they would be burying him in it soon after.
So you can imagine their disbelief when Bentley came out kicking and screaming. He was passed among family and friends for the first five hours, with everyone expecting the next hour to be his last.
But he didn’t stop breathing, and the Yoders were told to take him home and arrange hospice care. “He was never looked at as a baby that was going to survive,” says Sierra.
Taking Bentley home.
They took him home, albeit still with only a meagre amount of hope. However, to their surprise — and with some complications like a staph infection on his lungs — he continued to thrive.
He continued to grow, moving normally and crying when he needed feeding. In fact, Sierra could see nothing different between Bentley and her older son Beau.
He was, she says, just a normal baby with “something on the top of his head”.
The first surgeon they saw made it seem like the procedure to help Bentley would be simple. They claimed the growth on his head was “just damaged tissue” and “there’s no way it could be functioning”.
Looking at how well their son moved and fed, Sierra and Dustin couldn’t believe that Bentley wasn’t using his brain. They decided to seek out a second opinion — which is how they ended up at Boston Children’s Hospital, a facility with a renowned Cleft and Craniofacial Centre.
Here they met Dr John Meara, the first person to tell them there was a good chance five-month-old Bentley was using the brain that was outside his skull, meaning it couldn’t simply ‘be removed’. He was also the first person to make them feel at ease with their situation.
A surgical strategy was formed. Surgeons practised the unique skills required to operate on Bentley using 3D models. And on 24 May 2016, the surgery began.
The five-hour procedure went faster than expected. It required fluid to be drained from Bentley’s head, before surgeons could gently move the brain back inside the head. Leftover bone was then used to close the gap and reform the skull.
Sierra told the Post that doctors aren’t sure what to expect next. “Because of how different his brain really is, they have no one to compare him to.”
he signs so far are looking good. He can hold his head up, he is making noises, and he looks like his big brother. But no milestone is assured.
For now the Yoders and their loved ones simply need to take each day as it comes. He’s defied the odds so far, which is reason enough to continue to hope for the best.
