With the most recent addition to the growing list of mass shootings, I am very certain that my view on gun control has changed. Even with events such as Sandy Hook and the Orlando Night Club shootings, I still stood behind the façade that it was the person that committed the crime. Not the gun. But...

According to the National Park Service, 500 million straws are used in America every day. That’s enough straws to circle the earth two and a half times. And the worst part?

Women in America have come a long way since the days when girls were raised to be housewives and preform domestic chores, an even longer way since the suffragettes who had to campaign and protest for decades to gain the right to vote, and a much, much longer way since the days of tight corsets and arranged...
