Last week, Google released its “Year in Search” video for 2017. In just 2 minutes, Google revealed the array of what the world searched for over the past 12 months. In many ways, it’s not surprising what we Googled this past year, but Google’s video is surprisingly emotional and hopeful.

My husband is Jewish. My son is Jewish. I’m Jewish, too—but I didn’t start out that way. I came to Judaism in my teens, whereas my son was born Jewish, just like his dad.

This Artist Turns Stretch Marks Into Rainbow Body Art & Her Message Of Revolutionary Self Love Is So Important
Cartró's work isn't just important, it's necessary. The female body is one that is always in flux throughout her lifetime: Our body parts bulge, shrink, stretch, sag, and give.
