Some news stories that caught our eye this week:

Up-and-coming Democrat refuses to be shamed about her abortion. “The Democratic nominee, a state representative in Nevada, bucks a stunning array of expectations that people have for politicians: Lucy Flores grew up poor, dropped out of high school, has done time in prison, and has a regrettable ankle tattoo.

I don’t want to ‘put things into perspective’ for you or remind you of everything you ‘take for granted’.
