Coffee has quite a reputation. Moms across the world discourage their children from drinking it, yet laugh off their own dependence on it to get them up in the morning. But overall, there seems to be a common underlying attitude: coffee is bad for you. But is it really? Recent evidence has reigni...

A March Without a Shooting

Students hold a sign explaining that they rather read books than eulogies. They're aware of this issue, and they demand change.

April 2, 2020

The conclusion of the month of March was a momentous occasion. Why? Because it is the first March, in nearly two decades, that our country did not suffer from a school shooting. We should be celebrating. We should be proud of this enormous accomplishment.  But I’m not celebrating. I don’t feel an...

Brave Enough

This is an illustration that represents my feelings when I’m faced with a stressful situation.  It feels like I’m about to jump off a cliff, without knowing what lurks below.  I can either turn away or jump, and there’s only one way to find out what’s at the bottom.
