Il primo voto di Arlo

Arlo ha poco più di tre settimane. Questo è quello che suo padre Josh gli racconterà fra qualche anno quando gli parlerà di queste elezioni:

I’ll remind him that we were emerging from one of the darkest periods in our country’s history, a period in which our nation had been attacked by terrorists, an act that, rather than uniting us, inspired our leaders to lie to us, to offer false comfort, and to enact grave misdeeds that endangered not only our own physical safety, but the future of our democracy.

I’ll remind him that no individual could possibly dig us out of this mess alone, that it was up to all of us to rebuild our country, like a city rebuilds after a storm.
