An American Weekend

I spent all weekend at the American Association for Justice Convention in Boston. It was restorative at a time when it is easy to doubt our democracy. Trial lawyers from all across the country, working on the craft of jury trials that has protected the rights of people since the 1200s. I went for a run through Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States, where protestors were arguing politics just as they were in Samuel Adams’s day. Attended a reception at Fenway Park, MLB’s oldest ballpark, where Americans have been playing baseball for over a century. Our country has a lot to love—and it is worth fighting for.
