Sometimes it feels like everything we ever knew is falling apart. When I was younger, my mom always assured me that the US was the best country to live in, that we were so powerful and so prosperous and so free. But as I got older and started learning more about the world around me in light of the war and economy over these past years I started to doubt my mother’s beliefs. The outlook for our entire situation is looking better, but it still frightens me. And sometimes I forget that it’s not just us. Every part of the world is enduring something similar.
