Budgets reflect our values and priorities. President Trump is willing to cut Medicaid, the arts, Meals on Wheels, PBS, and food stamps to give tax cuts for the wealthy, over-spend on the military, and build a do-nothing slab of concrete. What does this say about how he believes we should take care of the poor and vulnerable of our nation?
My advice to those new graduates: you don't have to be something to do something. Don't wait to be given a role by a formal authority, we can all make our voice heard and bring about positive change in this world.
