It was said that all Presidents would solve global warming. 

When the anti-protestors used the Internet to voice their outrage on-line forums, and social media, we waited for our parent's concern about the pollution that was almost as bad as in Asia. In America, people wear masks on their faces, and cough up blood because of the infections they have.  And there's no cure.

I walked the New York streets, while President Donald Trump wanted to see out a second term. He wanted to "Make America Great Again"; he wanted America to feel good about his country. Children gasped for air, and held up protest banners that read: END THE POLLUTION. The bright sun shone in the black sky, and disappeared by six o'clock in the early evening.

I couldn't see the planets because of the pollution.

All I knew was what was happening in the here and now.

I wanted to speak about 2019.

But, to my shock, everyone was prepared for the sun to shine.

Sadly, in the end, it didn't happen.
