Oy! Chicago: Stories and Voices that Must Be Heard
Finding meaning in Israeli stories after the U.S. election. I love politics. I am passionate about ideas and have a deep need to express my opinions. This is great except that I am also terribly sensitive. I am the sort of person who takes elections personally.
I’ve always been this way. In elementary school when my class would vote to play kickball instead of hide-and-seek it felt like a direct assault. Later, when I successfully worked to convince my high school class to vote in favor of having our graduation ceremony outside on the football field rather than inside our steaming hot gym, I felt like the greatest person alive. There wasn’t much at stake way back then, but that didn’t make my emotions any less ferocious.
