Not Making America Great Again

Not Making America Great Again Donald Trump was elected, apparently with great apprehension, as the 45th President of the United States on 8 November 2016.

Melissa

Melissa Holidays are odd. You wake up and realise that you didn’t really have to. You don’t have school or a job to go to. People usually have plans with friends, I didn’t.   The house seemed quiet. I walked around as I brushed my teeth. My family was out. The silence was eerie. Back…
