What does poverty, labor laws, drinking water and Isis have in common?

Flint, Michigan.

The year is 1937 and the City of Flint ignited union strikes that revolutionize labor laws in America. The year is now 2017 and Flint ignited the drinking water epidemic that  altered America’s thinking about its “safe” drinking water.

Yesterday, in this year of 2017, like flint chemistry, Flint once again burst onto the scene to inflame and high-light what is wrong with America and the world. An Isis sympathizer stabbed repeatedly a police officer at the Flint, Bishop international airport. The problem is not London knives or American guns, it is the greed of the powerful and the wealthy.

Flint is teaching us that when you perpetuate the poverty of others for your own selfish benefit it will always come back to strike you like a flint.
