I was recently interviewed on Maryanne Live!, a radio show that asks experts for “insights and common-sense truths” about life. Only this time, it was Maryanne who delivered the most intriguing insight. She asked me:
“Barbara, is America going through a midlife crisis?”
I hadn’t thought about it like that, and when I did, I realized Maryanne was onto something. No matter your politics, there’s no denying that our country has hit a rough patch. We’re acting out. We’re dreading an uncertain future. We’re struggling to find our place in the world, and struggling even more to figure out how we can make a difference.
