What is the most relevant word befitting to the entire globe? No matter what language you speak; no matter what subject of concern; from now to the end of time, one word rules: sustainability.

The first part of A Dark Bayshore High School Reunion identified some of the omissions and blunders, the missing records and memories and the dereliction of duty by those who are paid to protect us from toxic environments like the one that may have taken the lives of countless students and staff of the old Bayshore High. Further investigation into the circumstances of this case reveal more deaths possibly related to Bayshore, while connecting the Vo-Tech school, community college and local residents.

Donald Trump claims his $8 billion net worth is all that needs to be said about his ability to get the U.S. economy back on track.
