Considering the sexually illicit and violent content one can see on cable today, I can't help but be shocked and confused that in 2014, parents and institutions still fight to ban books from their children's curriculums and libraries.

Time magazine featured a girl taking a selfie on the cover with giant letters screaming “The Me Me Me Generation.” But since when does appreciating the way you look mean you’re vain?

Perhaps it comes from a love of the changing colors of trees and leaves, the pumpkin-flavored and scented items, and the darker colors associated with fall: burnt orange, mustard yellow, burgundy, and forest green.
