It's Fourth of July, and each of my daughters are celebrating what they're proud of as Americans.
My oldest daughter is proud to be an American who supports #BlackLivesMatter and marches in protest against violence and for positive and lasting change.
My middle daughter is proud to be an American who writes optimistic poems and stories to inspire others her age when they're sad because of the pandemic.
My youngest daughter is proud to be an American who wears a mask whenever she goes out.
Happy Fourth of July to all Americans! May you keep healthy and safe.
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
I am a freelance writer and poet with nearly a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my family. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
