Democracy is Hard

Democracy is hard. In the words of Michael Douglas, who plays President Andrew Shepherd in the 1995 movie The American President, “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship.

September was Suicide Prevention Month and Chronic Pain Awareness Month

  By Amy Harth, Coffee Party Member and Volunteer Some thoughts as we close out September, which is both suicide prevention month and chronic pain awareness month. It’s lovely to make generic posts about listening to people who have suicidal ideation. Please know that people with depression and other mental illnesses struggle with asking for help. If you know someone is dealing with these things, reach out regularly. People who do not have or do not appear to have suicidal ideation […]
