I’m learning that technology overdose tears us apart. We must seek quiet time by unplugging each and every day. No matter how old we are, taking time to tune into our individual reality is the key to sanity for humanity.

• For Kindergarten to-high-school students, a ten-minute period of silence sometime during a day to pay attention to our thoughts or our interests during this special time.

Most parents know that toddlers seek attention. Democrats had no deal for POTUS big reveal. US House Speaker, Representative Nancy Pelosi California Democrat rejected POTUS offer to trade $5.7 billion for a permanent wall in exchange for a temporary "Dreamers." extension.

She said Trump’s plan a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.

It’s We The People who must demand that Trump open up the federal government, which he was happy to take the blame for shutting down over a wall. He told #USA taxpayers Mexico would pay for, but the funds have never materialized.

Should stunts and impulsive messages from the president count as formal policy actions? What's going on here?
Everyone supports border security, but the majority of Americans don’t support wasting money on his ridiculous wall.

On the eve of the Super Wolf Moon, which many Americans can fully enjoy, the youngest female US Representative ever elected, who represents my district is developing into a Congressional bright star out of the incoming freshman class of lawmakers from a record-breaking number of women, people of color, and LGBTQ representatives.

They’ve already begun to shake things up. This year’s elections appear to be changing Congress for the better. The midterm election was a @GOP disaster for a former group of House #Republicans.

Trump's Justice Department may be getting yet another Attorney General. This time he's chosen an individual who has also passed the bar and claims he will not be bullied.

William Barr, the attorney general-nominee, endures a mostly sleepy day before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He reiterated that he would let special counsel Robert Mueller finish his work. But he cast doubt on the question of whether Mueller’s report will be made public by the Justice Department.

Goodbye Dolly. Actress Carol Channing has passed away at the age of 97. She died Tuesday morning. Channing's trademark platinum blond hair framed her always smiling face, her wide-eyed innocent style belied a very savvy mind, and her voice was unmistakable.

I enjoy many wonderful memories of my dear parents singing and dancing to her signature song. Thank you very much, Carol, you'll always be the one and only Dolly.
