I’ve traveled much of this country in my life, from the East Coast to the Hawaiian Islands, from the lakes of Minnesota to Key West’s Southernmost Point.
Regrettably, I’ve come to realize that the United States is comprised of dangerously few pockets of intelligence, surrounded by a vast expanse of ignorance. The 2016 election is, for me, confirmation of this belief.
At this point in our nation’s history, it’s disheartening to recognize an indisputable need for educational reform and greater access to institutions of higher learning. An uninformed electorate is as dangerous as the scoundrels who fog its judgement and prey on its emotion.
