in News
News recently broke involving an absolutely gut-wrenching story that I think needs to be explored. It involves a young boy of 12 who hung himself over bullying. Sadly, that alone is not all that shocking, since bullying is still a rampant, disgusting problem in our society. What makes the situation all the more absurd, however, is that he was being bullied over his Vegan diet.

by Matt
It’s pretty easy to turn your nose up at a green smoothie if you haven’t tried one before. Admittedly, some do come out looking like a kind of alien ooze, but despite how they may look, a well made green smoothie is a delicious and healthy treat.

While most can be delicious, it can be shocking to try one and have it taste like grass. […]

It seems like either war is brewing, another city is flooding, or the White House is experiencing another round of turmoil. It’s easy to get discouraged, but don’t. Even as Hurricane Irma is stealing the news (especially for us on the East Coast), gigantic fires are raging all over the United States, even in places that rarely experience forest fires of this magnitude. The events unfolding in Montana at the moment are being called an environmental crisis, and Governor Steve Bullock has declared […]
