Hello! I’m Jackson and I’ll be your weekly Wednesday blogger. What I really like to do is read & write poetry and spoken words. The inspiration that made me want to start writing my own pieces was because of Fong Tran, an advocate for supporting the youth to strive for higher education. And with that I’ll be sharing the poems that I read with you all, along with my initial thoughts.
Hi! I’m Hannah Rose, maybe one day I’ll think of a better pen name. With my postings you can expect a lot of social and political activism, feminism, and jokes in my own expense.
On January 21, 2017, my mother and I had the privilege to be at the State Capital alongside thousands for the Women’s March. The diversity and more importantly the unity present in the crowd of more than 20,000 people was incredible. Women, men, children, and non-gender-conforming people of all kinds gathered to protest President Trumps defunding of Planned Parenthood and his oppression of women and minorities in general. I encourage everyone who reads this to go out and start a conversation on the pros and cons of Planned Parenthood and why the two party system is so divided that it cares more about what the party stands for than the well-being of the people that are depending on it.
I found this video to be very interesting. Most will agree with me when I say that it is not okay to treat any human being with disrespect. I love to see that some customers stood up for the actor who was playing as the employee. We all should be treated equally regardless of the difference in out appearance, color of our skin, class level etc.. Before watching this video just think how would you react to being in a situation where you seen a customer disrespecting an employee with down syndrome.
