I live in a small, quintessential Vermont town. It’s not the “nothing ever bad happens here” rural town you hear about in true crime podcasts, but it is quaint, idyllic, and kind of simple at times. While Vermont isn’t very populated, I live in the most populated county in the state. Crime is low, but we know bad stuff could happen, so we lock our doors while looking out for one another. When I was a kid, I always thought I would live in a big city, yet here I am, a proud soccer and hockey parent loving my suburban life. What’s not to love about my community? I am surrounded by a progressive pocket of hardworking, smart, and thoughtful people in a country that feels very dated in its beliefs and desire for progress. Every time we are faced with challenges — usually weather-related forces of nature — my neighbors have stepped up and in to clean up messes. Now I am seeing how willing my town and state are to also clean up social justice messes and protect each other from a global pandemic.
