Trump's America: Mesa County, Colorado

The narrative of “Trump’s America” in rural Colorado is bleak but not hopeless.  (Denver Post, 7/19/2017)
But inside my classrooms at Colorado Mesa University (a place Hessler calls a “bright spot” in his recent, expert analysis of Trump’s rural America), I feel a fragile potential for more. My husband, a new high school math teacher and soccer coach in the valley, feels it too. It’s why we’re here, and why we know our young people are the first and best hope to breathe life into a struggling community.
