I strongly agree that people are never too old to be a Disney fan. Disney movies are amazing because they teach people about loving one another, bring back childhood memories and are easy to relate to. They make for the best marathons. The songs featured in the films are amazing and the chara...

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Betsy DeVos was confirmed as the United States Education Secretary, with a senate vote of 51-50. As a Colorado public high school student, this affects my peers and I greatly.

We don’t really think enough about how dangerous sitting actually is. In fact, sitting is so vastly dangerous that when one does it during the National Anthem, this very act of sitting is the sole cause of distress for the rest of that person’s life.  In other words, we must accept that the National...
