Donald Trump Will Be My President And I Am Still An American Citizen

In a nation which fears the upcoming years, I suggest to you a truth that you will need to hear in order to make it.

Donald Trump Will Be My President And I Am Still An American Citizen
Morgan Cook

Well y'all, 2016 elections are over and post after post is being written. Some people are angry, not more than when their team loses the Super Bowl but none the less they are upset. Some people are proud, less proud than when their son wins his t-ball game but they are still quite proud. Others are speaking curses to those which they have not met and to others that they played on the playground with. Even then there are those who have felt a sense of unity with complete strangers as they watched the color red take over the polls. I even read a trending article where a poor fool claimed to be a citizen but says they will simply not accept Trump as their president as if their voice makes his presidency any less valid.

I write not to tell you my opinion nor my candidate of choice, however only to suggest to you that this election was not the beginning nor end of a country. To suggest to you dear reader that your prayers for this country cannot begin on November 8, 2016 and end by Christmas time when you have forgotten the polls and begun to unwrap your presents. I desire to suggest to you that hate has never nor will ever be the answer whether it be on the next President of the United States or of those who put him in office. Based on my understanding of our King and world, we are not in a new situation nor in one of dire need to forsake America. We are in a place where sin is rampant and our new President speaks like many of you. He speaks his mind with no regard to whose feelings are hurt or which lives are threatened. He speaks with the tongue that destroys safety, individualism and like many of you, he offends those whom their names he does not know. I want to suggest to you that other countries do not get to speak freely or have dozens of social media platforms to rant and rave their opinions. Other countries do however have rulers much more powerful than our President who operates under checks and balances whom threaten their lives and environments as they know it and like many Americans, those people have found themselves in a place where a decision must be made. I suggest to you that maybe as we face 4 years of day to day decisions to be made under President Trump that you as an American citizen exercise your right to speak truth, exert kindness, offer up love, extend your arm to your neighbor, pray for your cities and sacrifice yourself as a living offering to God whom is still the God under which America stands. Then fellow citizens, our next president will either rise to the occasion and represent an honorable people or he shall exceed our expectations but after all, a symbol is never to be better than the real thing. The President of the United States stands as our symbol to the world of the popular vote and values that us Americans hold and today, Trump is our next President.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
