PEYTON THOMAS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Whats your price for food?
Don't just think about the food but about the workers. What about the person who is working for the meat packing company? We want them to have nice and neat working conditions. They need to be safe while cutting, sorting and packaging our food. We do not want them working long and hard hours. If they do they might make mistakes. But we don't want to have immigrants working in the factories. When they get caught its them who gets punished and not the employers who had hired them. Next time you take a bite out of your Sunday morning bacon don't think about how good it taste but about the workers and the foods journey.
Alice's advice column
Dear future citizens of America if you have something that you believe in you need to stand for it. Take me for example i stood out of the white house in rain and snow. We may have been freezing but we wanted to vote and we need to stand for it. I got yelled at and made fun of by all the people passing. It didn't faze me. I wanted this and no one could have taken me down. Not even when i got taken to prison. I had a hungry strike to show i was standing for what i believe in. I got a piece of paper and i got it to the outside world. I had written about my harsh conditions. But i didn't quit because of it. I was not going to let that take me down.
Don't stop even if people before you have failed. Not if you are alone. The chances are if people see someone doing something that they were to scared to do themselves they will stand with you because they to needed someone to stand with them.So fight for what you believe in and don't stop because others told you to.
Remember "When you put your hand to the plow, you can't put it down until you get to the end of the row."
Sincerely, Alice Paul.
