The introduction to Craters of the Moon NPS on the National Park Service web page calls its landscape “weird.” Is hundreds of square miles of barren lava fields weird enough for you? With a surface littered with rock and little else, it’s no wonder astronauts trained here for lunar excursions. Sure, weird might the word many choose, but many others express amazement when they find themselves on what may be the closest thing on Earth to walking on another planet.

Project 2025, a conservative plan to radically reshape the federal government by strengthening and expanding the president’s power, poses a significant threat to current and prospective National Parks Service sites as well as other federally protected lands because it would "gut the Antiquities Act, which would allow the government to turn some of our most scenic and important public lands over to energy extraction interests.” This fantastic article from “Outside" details the threat.

Sitting barely beneath the shallow waters in Pearl Harbor sits a testimony to both strength and vulnerability. The USS Arizona was one of the Navy’s elite symbols of American power that, 15 minutes into the surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7th, 1941, was reduced to flaming wreckage and where 900 of her crew remain entombed to this day. A visit to Pearl Harbor National Memorial reminds us of the great cost of war and the sacred nature of human life.
