American Independence Day is Saturday, July 4, 2020. This week’s Care Packages are dedicated to the experiment, the dream, and the challenge that is the United States of America.
Poetry: Eliza Harris by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
Like a fawn from the arrow, startled and wild,
A woman swept by us, bearing a child;
In her eye was the night of a settled despair,
And her brow was o’ershaded with anguish and care.
Song In My Head: For What It’s Worth by Buffalo Springfield
