I’ve become so used to knowing the time of day due to her nudging, and speaking, and wagging of her tail. At 6:30 AM and PM it was snack time, and 5:00 PM was time for her dinner.

Why is it that children are hungry in the world and yet millions of dollars are spent deciding who will be the next President of the United States? Why is it that people die because they can’t afford health care? Why is it that kids get through a standardized test but can’t read, write, or engage in educated rhetoric?
