Grief is a difficult thing to deal with. And the moment you think you are finally healing something happens to open up that wound again. You know that you will never be the same and that you will always grieve what you lost.
Today I voted. Up until today I was back and forth between voting and not voting. Then today I woke up and realized that I couldn’t just sit at home and not vote. That’s just not who I am . I value my right to vote.Go and vote, let your voice be heard. You matter, your vote matters. We have the power to make a change, so go and Vote.
Today is election. No matter what your stance is on politics go out and vote. Your vote matters. Go and make your voice be heard. If you want to see change be the change you want to see. This is the time to speak up. And if we are being honest, I almost didn’t go out to vote. I hate politics and what politics has turned into but my voice is important just like your is. And I won’t let anyone take my voice away. So go out and vote and let your voice be heard and speak up and speak out .
Dear Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, to the teachers,students, and parents I send my condolences to you and I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Nobody should have to go through what you have endured. School should be a safe place not a war zone. You send your kids to school thinking that they will come home unharmed. I am praying for all those effected by this senseless tragedy.
I sort of had a epiphany, I realized that no matter how older you are, or where you are in life friendships change. They grow, and some friendships leave a mark on you .
There has been so much going on and I have so much on my mind that i need to get it off my chest. As I sit here I never imagined that i would be seeing first hand what my ancestors witnessed . My ancestors fought and worked so hard to make sure that future generations of our family wouldn’t suffer what they suffered and yet here we are . The sad truth that I have come to realize is that we as a country are reverting backwards instead of going forward. When is enough going to be enough ? This Country will not flourish and thrive if we are divided. I never thought i would see the day when I would see our country come apart at the seams. I mean i used to read it in the history books about moments when the country was divided but to actually see it for myself, to witness this saddens me.
This immigration ban saddens me, one because this is not what this country is about and two because it has an affect on my family. If trump can easily put a immigration ban on Muslims whats to say he won’t put one non Muslim immigrants . I think about my Muslim classmates and how this is affecting them and their families. and i think about my other classmates who are immigrants or has family that are immigrants . And now i am worried about my family how its going to effect us. People come to America to have a better life ,they don’t come here just to end up back in the same situation they were in. I wish i can say that things will get better but only time will tell.
