Thoughts on the upcoming election and how to vote

Voting is a crucial part of our country’s history. Voting can change laws, who is leading the country and taxes. It impacts local, regional, and national government. Without accurate voter representation, our country’s citizens would have no voice in our government.

Sitting in silence: Discussing racism as a community

Sitting in silence: Discussing racism as a community

This is a glimpse into my feelings as I prepare a group of five students for a “roundtable discussion” on the Charlottesville incidents and race. I can’t get the images of that day out of my head — or the trauma it unleashed. Like a soldier scarred by the sounds of war, I cannot hear anything else but the chant, “You will not replace us!”
