Dear President Trump

This past election year was one unlike any other in history. There was a lot of name calling, scandals and outrageous things said. It was not an election focused on the issues our country is facing. Climate change, the Syrian Refugee crisis, affordable health care and college debt are just a few tick marks on […]

Zero days without an incident: A country in denial

Shootings, threats, explosions, stabbings. When was the last time our country has gone a week, sometimes even a day, without some sort of multiple casualty situation?

Killing the environment is killing us

Climate change; we hear about it more and more in the news, discussions and politics, but do we really know what it is? Climate change is the issue that a vast majority of Americans say needs strong government action but that most Republican lawmakers and oil and coal companies deny. It is also the issue […]
