Describe an event in the world that has impacted you this year. How? Why?

School shooting in Parkland. This world is getting more chaotic and morality, conscience and personal responsibility is sorely lacking. Kids should be safe in school.

The separation of immigrant families shook me more than any news story I can think of lately. The night I first read about the news, I sat there holding jack jack and I just held him tightly and started crying, unable to imagine ever having him ripped away forcibly, perhaps never seeing him again. I just can’t imagine it. End of story.

I’ve become much more aware about plastic in the world. Every part of me wants to make a change in my life, but it’s easier said than done. I’ve already embraced reusable products, and tried to get rid of as much single use plastic as possible, but there is just so much plastic that’s part of daily life it’s inpssoble to avoid it. It horrifies me how much waste there is, and how much plastic there is in the oceans.
