John McMahon Thanks for this. I just read your piece on the Trump Boat Rally, and I really liked your approach to protests and politics generally. Though I find the Trump administration personally repulsive, comparable to the current anti-immigrant Conservative government we have in the UK, those who support these leaders often come from an eclectic range of backgrounds. I’d rather my daughter learns, as you have, to talk to people who she doesn’t agree with politically, rather than surround herself with those who simply repeat what one another says.

I’d be very interested in reading more of your writing, actually. It’s a shame you only have the one piece up so far!
