No one could have imagined that 2020 would look like this. Our economy was booming, unemployment numbers were down, and we were looking forward to the warmer months here in South Carolina. Then came one calamity after another, and the world seemingly came to a halt.   In a year already filled...
How often do you compare yourself to others?     There’s no avoiding it. We’re built to compare, and it’s not all bad. Comparing ourselves to others can be a motivating force, helping us embrace new challenges. But when it starts to erode our self-confidence and steals our happiness, we may...
As students across the country look ahead to the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, they will need to focus on their health and safety first, academics second. If they remain healthy they will benefit also their family members, teachers, friends, school employees and the world at large...
