Beverly Godfrey column: Lessons in love are the easiest
Every national tragedy brings a flurry of "how to talk to your kids" advice in its wake, and the massacre in Orlando is no different. Or maybe it is different. Considering the advances that have been made in recent years regarding LGBT rights, the shootings a week ago felt like a...
