There is a lot on the table that needs to be solved. People are hurting, and hurting badly.… Continue reading The Absence of Leaders
As a child, and as an educator, I loved snow days. Every time it began to snow at night, or waking up to it snowing, I always hoped for a snow day. I loved school, most of the time, but it was still exciting to hear school had been cancelled for the day, and maybe… Continue reading I Miss Snow
Finally the words we all needed hear, and a President who believes these words, is taking action towards helping the American people, and isn’t holding back in calling out the trumplicans/Republicans.
