No one told us the GOP debate was going to last 3 hours so this is coming in a little late and with a little commentary. The good news is we live in Denton, a city where it’s very easy to find a cause or initiative to get behind and effect real change in our community. Today is North Texas Giving Day and some of us will be out on the square raising money for at-risk children, the homeless, the hungry, and many other sources of need that are right in our community. Imagine if the same amount of energy spent in the next few hours in Denton on social media things such as the debate went into trying to solve the issue of students showing up to Denton ISD schools hungry because they aren’t fed at home.
