Written by Thursday, November 24, 2016

Saying what you are thankful for is a wonderful tradition that should never be underestimated. Giving a voice to your blessings is powerful and reminds you…

Trump Cabinet is Problematic

Written by Thursday, November 17, 2016
Uproar over Donald Trump winning the election continues more than a week later. But presidential elections are about much more than who becomes commander-in-chief. Cabinet appointments play a pivotal role in the future of our country, and already the president-elect’s shortlist of appointees is raising eyebrows among Republicans and Democrats. Trump is considering Steven Bannon, a nationalist media mogul, as his chief strategist and senior counselor in the White House. Civil rights groups, Democrats and some GOP leaders have criticized Trump, noting Bannon’s anti-Semitic and racist views. He is the former head of Breitbart News, an ultra conservative website dedicated…

Welcome to the Divided States of America

Written by Thursday, November 17, 2016
By Veronica Mackey It’s not the type of response one would expect after a presidential election in America. Sure, there’s always disappointment, but nothing like what we’ve seen during the last week. On par with the most divisive campaign in modern history, spontaneous protests over last week’s election results have ripped this country even farther apart. #NotMyPresident protests continue to spring up organically from the streets of Los Angeles to high schools in D.C. Even…
