Florida, Today We Mourn But Tomorrow We Rise

The country is truly divided.


We all sat down Tuesday, November 2018 for our midterm election. Waiting at the end of our seat for the results of the Florida Governor and the Senate and House seats. While all Floridians were stressed eating or drinking others couldn't help but start pacing as the results slowly trickled in.

The final results: Ron Desantis with 49.7% of the votes while Andrew Gillum with 49%. Twitter had a lot to say about this race for Florida. While some were for it, 49% of Florida was not having it.

Andrew Gillum ran a fair race, he ran with integrity, and with respect. While Ron Desantis showed a commercial teaching his daughter to build a wall so she won't get "hurt". This is the person that Florida decided to have as Governor? The man who thinks teaching a child to speak is holding up a "Make America Great Again" poster and telling a young impressionable little girl that this what it means to be an American?

I'm so disappointed in Florida especially all those who failed to vote because they felt like, "My voice doesn't matter" if all those who felt like their voices did not matter and wanted to vote to make their voice matter the tide would have been changed.

Yes, Florida is divided just like every other state in our country, but do not complain about the disarray of things if you failed to:

a. take the initiative in being proactive about our country

b. If you didn't take the 11 minutes it takes to go vote

c. If you didn't bother to remind people that our voices matter and we shall be heard no matter what

d. If you failed to fight for our rights (which is a state right)

I was rooting heavily for Andrew Gillum and not the man who lied, cheated, and kissed Donald trumps ass, so hard that I'm sure he got some of Trumps Ass Juice in his mouth, the whole race.

Florida, specifically those who are mourning for our nation, it is okay to cry and be angry. But, just remember, tomorrow we rise and fight harder.

The Saturday Called Life

The hard truth about losing a loved one, and the hope that comes along with it.

Lilia Valdez

We all are scared of something. Some people are scared of the ocean, others of spiders or snakes. For me, it's the unknown. I don't like uncertainty nor do I like being blindsided. Due to this, my biggest fear in life was death.

You are not alone - NY Yankees charge their players for WIFI on flights

It was recently in the news that the NY Yankees do not provide free wifi for their players on away game flights!!! That's earth shattering news because teams usually charter flights for their players, coaches, and support staff. These flights are typically equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and in-flight entertainment.

I Remember That Saturday

A memory that I will forever remember.


It was a Saturday night. We had nothing else to do besides be with one another. We were normally always in your bedroom watching television and talking about random topics that popped into our little brains. The only difference was, that Saturday night was nothing like the rest.
