    An educated population can find work and a population that can find work (including a means of transportation to work) is contributing to society. We all need to work together and find our place.

    What was it like to mend your clothing? If you are skilled at mending, what tips do you have for others?

    I've had a few buttons off for a while so took the time to sew them back on. I have a sewing machine, but more than once have sewed a seam by hand. I don't mind doing that activity while I sit and watch T.V. I also just finished the project of putting velcro on some covers I made for cushions as the outer material wore away but the padding was still good. Cushions are now ready for the outdoor chairs!

    Flood is the highest risk. Very low risk for wildfires. The higher risk in my area would be equity.

    Economy & Communities Induction Cooking
    Would you consider using an induction cooking surface? If you have used one before, what do you like about induction cooking?

    Denise Krol's avatar
    Denise Krol 4/29/2022 5:32 AM
    Yes - I would consider induction - I have a portable induction cooktop that I use for crepes and omelets. I would be all for replacing my gas stove with an induction cooktop! It holds a very even temperature and I love it!

    A lot of the dirty dozen list was bright colorful fruits. There seemed to be more vegetables on the clean list - a lot more green items. Shopping organic fruit would be a benefit!

    If we don't have respect for all individuals, we can't work together for a better future. Acceptance is the key for changing our future.

    Health & Equity Learn About Participation and Representation
    What are some of the barriers that exist to women and girl's equitable participation or representation in your community? Do you experience these barriers?

    Denise Krol's avatar
    Denise Krol 4/27/2022 6:32 PM
    The biggest barrier is likely the additional unpaid home and child care tasks that are taken up by women - even in 2 income families. I am lucky enough to have a husband who equal shares in child care and cleaning, but I see and hear about many in my area that are not as lucky.

    Food is a basic human need. Access to this for all will allow for growth of all populations and the ability to work together for a sustainable planet.

    Lower income countries have a higher rate of issues. More needs to be done to promote equity on a global scale. We have much to be thankful for in this country and much we take for granted. Reading some of the stats reminds me of that.
