Donald Trump has been in office 1 year, 96 days, 21 hours and 42 minutes as I write this sentence. My heart and my sense of country is heavy with sadness and doubt.
I’ve been interested in politics since my senior year of high school. I had a teacher than really impressed upon me the importance of knowing your rights as a citizen of the USA.

One month ago.
It’s been one month since 17 people lost their lives to yet one more school shooting.
Since 2012, 7000 students have lost their lives in school shootings. Let that sink in. That’s just five years. That’s a blink in time. 7000 lights have been snuffed out.

You voice is louder than you realize. You do make a difference.
