Every year my parents garden. I don’t much enjoy gardening; it’s sweaty, it’s boring, it’s dirty. But every year, I ask them to plant sunflowers for me, and every year we get nice, mediocre happy flowers. But not this year. This year, I finally got the eight foot sunflowers I deserve.

Every year my parents garden. I don’t much enjoy gardening; it’s sweaty, it’s boring, it’s dirty. But every year, I ask them to plant sunflowers for me, and every year we get nice, mediocre happy flowers. 

But not this year. This year, I finally got the eight foot sunflowers I deserve.

"I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’ll say it. I’ve had a really hard time finding work, so I’ve been living with my grandmother. And she’s told me recently that she doesn’t have the money to feed me. So I’ve been eating at my friend’s house. I go over there, and I’m too embarrassed to ask for anything, but his dad always insists. He says: ‘Why aren’t you eating? Please, eat!’ This has really caused my idea of ‘family’ to widen. I’ve learned that your family can be anyone."

Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.
