The first state coming into the ring to defend abortion rights scored a knockout. Kansas voters delivered a decisive punch at the polls and soundly rejected a state constitutional amendment to strip abortion rights.

Hello Young Me,

I’m writing this letter to you because there will be times throughout your life when you question the inevitability of good to triumph over evil. There will be times when you have doubts that the various movements are effectively organized to challenge the formidable enemies of the entire planet. Over the years, you will confront the adaptive elements of capitalism and tackle both the overt and covert manifestations of racism, patriarchy, and homophobia.

For example, a seemingly harmless but imposing weapon will be unleashed on the world called social media that will lull people into narcissism and individualism. There will be sophisticated weapons developed to engage in endless wars of mass destruction. You must never give up hope.
