This Super Tuesday, myself and a writer from my college newspaper, Western Kentucky University’s College Heights Herald, drove down to Louisville’s International Convention Center to cover the Trump Rally. I have covered politics before, but never a campaign rally and it was interesting to see how the treatment of the press differed. One of the most prominent things about the rally was just how many people where attending their own very first political rally. Supporters from age 5 to 82, people from all across Kentucky, and even Southern Ohio, gathered to hear from the man in the news, Donald J. Trump.
After the event inside the gathering of protestors grew to a point where the Louisville police became involved.
Here is a selection of images from that rally and the protest that followed. If you would like to read Andrew Henderson’s piece you can find it here.
Thanks for looking and as always,
It has been awhile. The last time we heard from each other was Thanksgiving. Instead of sitting around drinking coffee and catching up about Spain and Christmas and all of that let us jump right into where life is at right now.
Back in Kentucky I have turned right back into the person I was one year ago. I am in four classes, working on two video staffs and working on about three personal projects. So there will be a lot to post and reflect on. This blog is about to be revived.
Here are some images from life over the last couple of weeks.
The eight other international students in my Photo 1 class here in Denmark have easily become my family. Being away from the States and my actual blood relatives this Thanksgiving was a bit difficult, but I had so much to be thankful for.
After the exhausting two weeks of shooting and editing video, we took some time to give thanks and share an American meal, complete with a turkey (at least we think it was turkey) and my cousin’s famous stuffing recipe. We gorged ourselves on food and wine and then took a break to discuss life and happiness and our love for those around us. Then we ate pie, of course,
I’m ever so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had this past year to travel across the US and now Europe. I’m grateful for the friends I’ve made and the inspiring people I’ve met who have allowed me to tell their stories. I’m grateful for all of the experiences this year has held, both good and bad, for this year has easily been the biggest year of growth for me both professional and personally.
And I’m grateful to all of you, those who stop by the archives to see what I’m up to. Even if it is only my mom.
