Because this is America, the Fourth of July was marked by violence.
Content note: A generalized discussion of the Highland Park shooting on the 4th of July. No details of the shooting—mostly details about Highland Park.
Dan and Maureen have fled their respective cities. Dan is checking in from a woodland idyl, while Maureen reports from outside of Philadelphia. Both spent the Fourth of July avoiding fireworks. But because this is America, the Fourth of July was marked by violence. Because Dan knows Highland Park well, this week’s discussion turned to hometowns, living in America, and what comes after.
Also, no one likes fireworks, right?
This one’s about taking good care of yourself and each other, SayWhovia. Come sit on the picnic blanket with us.
