I believe that climate change is a real threat to our planet’s wellbeing and I know that climate change is already occurring. In my community, the effects of climate change are already being felt. Normally in my state, Indiana, the winters are cold and snowy. Most years, the temperature does not get above freezing. This year, though, the temperature has fluctuated from below freezing to warm. Most days the temperature stays between 40*F and 50*F. The high temperature for tomorrow is 60*F. We have also only gotten one minor snow event. If we do get winter weather, we get freezing rain because it is not cold enough to snow. I would like to say to Mike Pence that no, climate change is not a myth. Climate change is real and is happening in his own state.

Robert Francis Kennedy ● (November 20, 1925 - June 6, 1968)

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”

He was fascinated by his children and the way their minds worked. He was an inveterate storyteller, and he kept telling Caroline about–I don’t remember whether it was a blue whale or a white whale, but there was a lovely fictitious character that he’d invented. Caroline would climb on his lap and just ask for this same story to be started again; he could turn it on and off at will.

One day he was sitting on the stern of the Honey Fitz telling her another whale story, and Franklin Roosevelt, Jr. was sitting beside him with his legs crossed and his shoes off, and he was wearing a very dirty pair of sweatsocks. As the President told the story, he said that one of the delicacies the whale liked the most was old, dirty sweatsocks; and he reached over and grabbed one off of Franklin’s foot and threw it over the stern. The President kept on with the story, saying that the only thing the whale liked more was a second sock off and threw it over the stern. Caroline watched with absolute rapt fascination as the socks disappeared into the water, because she thought the whale had them.”  - William Walton
