    The Tournament of Life

    As we are here at the US Open Finals weekend, I can’t help but see the similarities of the path through the bracket as it pertains to life in general. When you are born into this world where you land isn’t up to you. You could be seeded anywhere in life. Few are placed in top seeded environments while some others do get seeded but they’re somew…read more

    The energy from Niagara Falls

    For anyone that’s visited Niagara Falls for the 1st time I’m sure it left a lasting impression on your life of travel. We use the term awesome often in many daily comments but Niagara Falls has the ultimate hold my beer stance. This was my 4th visit to the Falls ( 2 on the Canadian side, 2 on the New York side) and I can tell you this one was the…read more

    • Aww @jfritz I love this. It is so nice to hear about the beauty in the world. I love Niagara Falls. While the world feels so scary right now, there are still so many beautiful people and places that offer us both peace and happiness. I, too, have many positive memories going to Niagara Falls and reading your letter made me think about going there…read more

      • I knew this would hit home with you from your NY days. This story really was just a small part of what I was privileged to witness and be a part of. One of my favorite sporting events is the Olympics and it’s not just because of the games. It’s watching the pure joy of so many from around the world together in one place celebrating a common int…read more

        • I love the Olympics too. I always liked all the stories, which isn’t surprising. I was inspired by the hard work, determination and relentless spirits of all the athletes. I always wanted to take their guts and determination and some how apply it to my life and my passions. Their stories made me believe anything is possible in life!

Your passion is already reflected in your work where you’ve built your business from your dream into our reality as a community. The best part is that The Unsealed is unfinished and you’re making it grow one great story at a time. Your genuine authenticity of carin…read more

            • awww thank you. You have no ideas how helpful your words are. Building a business is no joke. It’s tough. But it’s comments like this one that tell me “Keep going. Keep pushing. This is meant for you.” Thank you for believing in me and believing in The Unsealed. It means more than words can express. with love, Lauren

    Dear America

    Dear America,
    The news that the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade deeply saddens me and fills me with guilt. This decision is very personal to me. In 2008 at the age of 25 I got pregnant, while using two forms of birth control. I have never wanted children and I decided to have an abortion. Only problem was that I have so many medical…read more

    • Sarah, Do not feel guilty at all. There is a very famous quote from Maya Angelou
      that says, “Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”

      Simply by doing what was best for you and standing up for yourself, you stood up for all women. Never ever feel guilty for som…read more

    • Sara,

      I know how you feel. I also understand where your choice was made. My Mother was told by her doctor to abort me because she was extremely high risk. She was almost 39 years old when I was born. Despite the great risk to her life she continued on. I completely understand the choice you made and I’ve actively spent most of my life fighting…read more

      • Thank you! I read your letter and your mom sounds like a truly brave person. We all have different stories, but it is nice to know that there are people who can sympathize or empathize. Thank you for standing for Women’s Rights. I think in moving forward, we need more men to stand up and say this is wrong and inexcusable. There is much work to be…read more

        • My Mother’s experience catalyzed my view on the issue of abortion. I often wondered what would’ve been had she not survived my birth. My Father would’ve been left with 3 small children. He never finished schooling because he left school to take care of the family farm when my Grandfather had a heart attack. My life may have been lost as well.

          I…read more

  • Dear Supreme Court

    Today, you struck down 50 years of a woman’s right to choose. While it doesn’t come as a shock and I expected it would happen, it doesn’t dissuade my dismay.

    For context, allow me to beam you back to December of 1983. At a doctor’s appointment my Mother was told to abort me as the risk to her life would be great should she choose to continue her…read more

    Dear America

    Dear America
    I wrote a little about my feelings a little while ago. While it was good, it wasn’t all that I wanted to say. So I deleted it and here I am starting over. Nineteen children and two teachers will never be afforded the chance I’m getting here.

    The most powerful thing I saw in the days that followed this terrible shooting I’m Uvald…read more

  • To my fellow Americans ... which Freedoms are we “celebrating” exactly?

    Honestly, I had a difficult time “celebrating” Memorial Day this year. Obviously there is a debate to be had of whether a day of remembrance of the dead deserves celebration; but in this country it has been celebrated, as a day of rest and “freedom”.

    This year, it felt kind of pointless to me. Yes those who have served and died, still deserve to…read more

    • Dear Danielle,
      When reading your letter I felt your frustration. Each person’s experience with freedom in this country is different. As a country we can do much better to bring all people from all different backgrounds into the fold.
      My experience has been different from yours. I know for sure our country has a lot of flaws but I…read more

        What a powerful letter! I really enjoyed reading this. I’m sure a lot of other people can resonate with your words. I understand your frustration and where you are coming from. With good there is also bad, and there is certainly a lot that could be changed about this country. I love how you mention that many people look for answers…read more

    • I understand your dilemma. The world seems to have a problem with change. It’s within the means of race, political opinions, and the lgbtq community. How could the united states be united when we are mainly divided. We claim to be the solution when we even have a division in politics, democrats vs. republicans and also race black vs white and t…read more

    Let us work together

    Dear Unsealers,
    The last couple of days have brought so much sadness to our country. Seeing so many young beautiful people lose their life so horrifically is too much to bear. On top of that, I feel so much frustration. Is there not anything we can do to change the trajectory of this awful problem. Is there no common ground to change something to…read more

    • I wish there was a way to help many people around the world from the power of gun violence. In my mind I always asked myself; Why do we as citizens need guns? Especially when half of the people who had guns only has it now to protect themselves against another person with a gun. Why couldn’t they just keep guns in the military and then when t…read more
