The Volunteer State thrives because of the dedication of its local leaders. That’s why every year I’ve served in the United States Senate, I have prioritized meeting with community leaders, business owners, manufacturers, and families from each of Tennessee’s 95 counties.

Over the past month, the shootings, kidnappings and murders plaguing the streets of Memphis were plastered on front pages and TV screens nationwide. These horrific acts of violence made headlines, but the resulting coverage exposed only a small portion of the crime wave devastating American cities and suburbs caused by the Democrats' desperate attempt to appeal to the radicals in their party.

It is so exciting to see the faces of children when a new school year begins. Anticipation, new friends and many new things to learn. I saw all of this these last couple of weeks in my grandkids. My first question to them is always, “Do you like your teacher?”
