Just call me a simple cowboy from the Sandhills of Nebraska but it seems to me if I had the attention of the entire nation with a women's march/protest/terrorism which ever best suites your fancy well then I would talk about something that really matters.

From the NY Alliance Against Sexual Assault.

The Scope of The Problem
  • One woman in four will sexually assaulted during her lifetime. 
  • 683,000 adult American women are forcibly raped each year. This equals 56,916 per month; 1,871 per day; 78 per hour; and 1.3 per minute. 
  • Only 16% of rapes are ever reported to the police. 
  • 61% of rapes occurred before the victims were eighteen years old. 29% occurred when the victims were younger than eleven.

Or Maybe

According to USDA, an estimated 14% of American households (17.4 million households) were food insecure in 2014, meaning they lacked access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members.
The Census Bureau statistics establish two grades of food insecurity: Very low food security and low food security.
Too many children do not have access to enough healthy food daily.

Please spend 8 minutes listening to Jan 23, 2017 Colorado Trails and Tales as I summarize what I think is important about the day and time we live in.

Hey Trent,
Just listened to your Colorado Trails message. You are on the money!!!
Two points:
1) I may not agree with what you are saying, but I will fight to the death to defend your right to SAY it.
2) Your take on the importance, or lack there of, about the number of people attending the Inaugural Speech is right on! As you know our Cowboy Ethics schools are in "Food Deserts" and we are working to show kids that a bag of chips and a pop are not supper. Indoor gardens in schools and classrooms and showing kids how to prepare healthy meals are far more important.
