Oklahoma is primarily a "Red State". Being governed by Republicans has serious downfalls. One of those major downfalls is the continued efforts to completely destroy public education.

In the rush of life it is easy to take for granted the simple things. Before I got pregnant with my son I worked 16 hour days. All I could think about was making money. I grew up very poor and money has always been my chief worry.
