Do You Love Where You Live?
    "I love it here. After my husband and I settled in Louisville I convinced my father, then my brother, to move here too. We are from Michigan but we love Louisville,"said a young mother of two during casual conversation at a local park.
I was with a friend, her child and my child. -I hear comments like the aforementioned one a lot about my hometown. Louisville, Ky.

What are the Good Things about Your Current City?
   This city has a good local music scene, a sincere appreciation and respect for local businesses; there's not too much traffic, housing prices are affordable for many, the job economy is above average with an unemployment rate at 4.2% as of Aug. 2016 per https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LOIUR/, and there are dozens of awesome parks.

Wondering how so many could have voted for this arrogant asshole.


Lady Liberty cries today,
Her tears flow freely to the sea,
A place without lines, borders, or divides,
Unlike the country you've made for me.




A Brief Profile of the Sanders Supporters that Voted Trump

   Young (between the ages of 18-28), educated and highly skeptical of mainstream media is this group.

KHS Follow Up, Apology Letter

November 14, 2016
Dear Ms. Kane-Redmon,
The last letter I sent you has perturbed me. I regret writing and sending you a letter with a harsh undertone. You, nor anyone at KHS, deserves that.
You dedicate your career and life to working in Animal Welfare day after day. That demands recognition and respect.

My apologies, not for the sentiment expressed in my initial letter, but rather for potentially coming accross as harsh or judgmental.
-We're all works in progress in this thing called life.
I revere the Kentucky Humane Society and the work it does in this community. -With any progress comes growing pains.


Respectfully,

Jessica Pita
