The Kiowa County Independent is thrilled to have Judy Bean write a book column called Mrs. Bean’s Bookshelf. Judy was kind enough to give us her biography so we could introduce her in the best way possible. Look for her first review in the August 3, 2016 edition of the INDY.
Throughout the past four decades, tattoos have changed from being a sinful scar to a decorative piece of art. Although the older generation still feels as if ‘inking’ is a waste of money, other people find it enjoyable. For myself, I have found comfort and reassurance in tattoos. I’ve always had a passion in drawing, painting, or even sculpting objects into my own emotions. This type of therapy was more than an output of negative energy, but it was the best way to portray exactly ‘who I am’.
It has gone too far. A situation starting as a horrific shooting, has turned the world into a ball of panic. It wasn’t until the media identified the shooting as a ‘white’ police officer, unjustly killing a ‘black’ man, that people became outraged. After that one incident, it was almost as if shootings like these became so apparent in the daily news.
