Weekend Reads: Ups and Downs

Well, this week I was hopeful and excited on Sunday and in tears by the time Wednesday rolled around and our president decided to ban Muslims from entering the country. I'm back in class, learning about balance sheets and cash flows and all sorts of good stuff. But when I'm not doing that, I'm freaking out over what's happening to our country. Don't forget to call and make your voice heard. It's more important than ever!!!
