Mother to Son


BY LANGSTON HUGHES



Well, son, I’ll tell you:

Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.

It’s had tacks in it,

And splinters,

And boards torn up,

And places with no carpet on the floor—

Bare.

But all the time

I’se been a-climbin’ on,

And reachin’ landin’s,

And turnin’ corners,

And sometimes goin’ in the dark

Where there ain’t been no light.

So boy, don’t you turn back.

Don’t you set down on the steps

’Cause you finds it’s kinder hard.

Don’t you fall now—

For I’se still goin’, honey,

I’se still climbin’,

And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.

Mexico disrespects U.S.

these 9 crew members were brutality thrown in jail in Mexico. After what seems like forever the Mexican government finally released them with an insincere apology. Then when the U.S. asks for a more upfront apology they disrespect our flag and disagree.

Child labor laws disrespected

In the coal mines children are working in very dangerous circumstances. These children should be riding bikes not working in the coal mines. We should stop using coal to prove a point and set these kids free.

What A Funny Little Government

In the picture it seems as if Rockefeller is in control of the government because the white house has smoke coming out of it and there are barrels of oil everywhere while he has the government in his hands. In my opinion Rockefeller is a good part of the government because of how much money that he made for the country.
