Civil War Fact

I recently learned a fact about the American Civil War I wasn’t aware of before. What I learned was that before the fighting, Abraham Lincoln won the electoral vote but he did not win the popular vote. Because of this, many people in the South said and believed he won only the Northern vote, not the Southern vote before seceding and the fighting started. I thought that was interesting because Trump of course is notorious for not winning the popular vote in 2016. So, for me and other people that fear there will be a civil war in this country, if there isn’t one happening already, this civil war fact can be extremely disturbing.

Why We Strike Again by Greta Thunberg, Luisa Neubauer and Angela Valenzuela

I do think the world will be changed by people that see climate change as a dire threat and others that just want to use it to gain more power, for their own agendas, but I worry this change will help make people less free and lose freedoms, because the people in power will say people can’t be trusted to fix the planet themselves and must be supervised.

To Every Thing There Is A Season

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

-Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
