I don’t consider myself a political person, but after the 2016 election, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the topic. Donald Trump has found his way into classroom discussions, family gatherings, and even a few of my own poems. I can still remember the heavy sighs from my mom – who doesn’t consider herself political either – and even my sister coming home telling me things that her classmates and teachers had said. Most times, it wasn’t positive.
