From Flagstaff to Flint -Some of our Communities Cant Drink Their Own Water

Some of our communities can’t even drink their own water because it’s so poisonous” said Klee Benally, a Dine revolutionary who works all over America but lives in Flagstaff, Arizona. Klee has done work to protect the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff from becoming a ski resort. But, the government went along with it anyways.

Everything’s Political

Poverty is politics

Racism is politics

Sexism is politics

Classism is politics

Capitalism, politics

Concussion Review

I'm going to be doing a review on the movie Concussion, a movie about football and the dangers of it.

You could hate or love this guy: his name was Doctor Omalu.

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.

A breeze for Mark

There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.

You Call This Healthcare?

July 14, 2015

I suppose I should just resign myself to being emotionally abused by my new doctor
or to find another one.

The onslaught continues in the emotional tug of war between me ascertaining my rights and her attempting to impose her will over me.
