5 Things That Will Make You Feel Better About The Future
Kristen Rhodes

There is no doubt in my mind that we are beginning to lose hope in our country, the United State of America. Our confidence is running low but our determination is high. We are determined to help our country stay great. We are determined to not let hate become the ruler of our country. In the past year, we have seen exactly how much we are willing to do to keep our country great. Here are some of the ways we have and will continue to keep America great.

1. A majority of millennials, adults, and minorities voted for the democratic platform.

They voted for LGBTQ rights, feminism, minority rights, disability rights, the decision to choose what to do with your body and many more issues.

2. Just one day after the Inauguration of our 45th president, Donald Trump, historic numbers gathered for the Women's March on Washington.

This march occurred on all seven continents, in over 75 other countries and in every state in America. Nearly 5 million people gathered to march for women's rights, disability rights, and minority rights. It was a unified march with a feeling of love trumping hate.

3. More people now more than ever are becoming open minded to people different than them.

4. Women are gaining more leadership positions.

5. Different races and religions are coming together to protect muslims, hispanics, LGBTQ communities, minorities and so many more.

I have hope for the United States of America. We are not a doomed country just because of one mistake. As Kelly Clarkson says, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". These are words to live by in our current world.

Stay Woke America,

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
