Incarcerated Fire Fights

In the year 2020, we have been experiencing the terror of these recent forest fires. The United states has so many firefighters engaging the heat but they now have become stretched thin.

Unpacked Skittles

On February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin had just purchased a pack of skittles in his hometown of Sanford Florida. This normal act of buying a snack at the convenience store was the last luxury of his life.
