Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Hope.
From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:
From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
I took this photo at last year’s Good Friday counter-protest at Planned Parenthood in St. Paul, Minnesota. Every time I see this photo I grin and feel a sense of excitement that the next generation of pro-choice activists is on the way (yes, I know I’m assuming a lot. Let’s just say there’s a good chance that she’ll be raised to support womens’ reproductive rights). More than that, though, it gives me hope when I meet people who understand that pro-choice doesn’t mean anti-children or anti-family.
From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:
At a visit to the National Museum of Health and Medicine, an entire display about Biomedical Engineering pretty much defines hope.
