Covid-19: Let’s Talk About What Kids’ Are Thinking (by a kid for kids)

I’m Allie, and I am 10 years old and one of your average kids. I am in the 5th grade and like most kids in America, if not around the world, I am home and have to stay put. Until now, I didn’t quite understand why I was out of school, why my dad is working from home, why our stores are all out of food and why I am doing school online–until I looked it all up and talked to my mom.

I hear parents helping people out there, especially my mom since she works in the mental health field and has been helping people deal with their emotions around this new weird virus thing. But no one is talking to kids. No one is answering their questions or talking about what we should do about this virus, how we should handle it, how serious it is and really just making us feel like we are a part of it all.

We ARE part of it all. We hear you talk. We see the news on. We hear the political whispers, and kids should not be ignored anymore, especially now.

So, to help parents understand us, and to make kids feel like they are normal, here are some things from a kids’ perspective on COVID-19 for BOTH kids and parents. Listen up! Read more

Conservatives—we have failed America and we are partly to blame.

Let’s not fail the next generation.

I remember the first time I met Sarah Palin. Little did I know that the words she and I had together would literally change my life forever. She inspired me with her advice, with the person she was and with what she was doing to make America a better place; and if you know anything about me, you know not many human beings truly inspire me. Billy Graham is one man who I look to for wisdom and I look to my Creator and the Word of God for most everything else. So when I found inspiration in Sarah, I knew I needed to listen and act.

It was such a wild time in this country when Governor Palin was running as VP with Senator McCain. The conservative movement was about to explode and I never knew the impact it would have on my life as I worked as one of the movement’s leaders to change America for the good. My message was to keep the God in this country, to maintain the integrity of the Constitution, to make sure Americans were cared for fiscally and socially and make sure we had a strong moral foundation. We needed these things to keep America true to her ideology, to protect the family unit and to be examples to the world, of integrity and principles. Sounds like a good plan that all of America could embrace, right?

Apparently not. Read more
