The United States, a rich country, a wonderful place where we can be creative, free, and ourselves. We as one are all part of a melting pot of distinct races, religions, gender, and cultures.

He wants to build a border wall to keep his interests safe instead of making bridges with our neighbors, Canada and Mexico.

You stand on the boardwalk facing the beach. The sky is gray, and the wind from the storm blows strong, though the rain stopped hours before.

The boys’ soccer team had a rough season this year, losing every game but one. Their final record was 1-8 which was almost the opposite of last year. Even though they didn’t hit the same amount of success as last year, it doesn’t mean they are not successful. They started out with a close game and a nice opener for the season.

Detroit: Become Human is a PS4 exclusive story game that mainly takes place in Detroit, Michigan, during the year 2038. Its main pitch is that it’s a game where your choices REALLY matter.
