Born in Albert Lea, MN, was raised on a dairy farm in northern Iowa to Norwegian Lutheran parents. Public school teacher for 28 years, now homeschooling(unschooling) my 2 dyslexic teenagers. Husband is a native Texan, retired educator. We do the hobby farm thing, with chickens for eggs, lots of dogs, cats, and one goat. Climate change scares the hell out of me. We have had 3 major climate change events here in our part of Texas during the past 5 years. This is serious shit and few connect the dots. Bernie gives me hope. My daughter and I saw him live a couple of weeks ago. It was spiritual. 7000 people united. Loud cheers gave way to intense silence as he spoke.
