As we all know, the past week has been another devastating one here in the United States. We saw senseless violence, the desecration of a sacred American institution, an assault on democracy, abject bigotry, anti-semitism, loss of life, and so much more. One spectacular resource in understanding everything going on is @sharonsaysso on instagram. Sharon McMahon is a talented and hugely knowledgable former Government studies teacher who has recently gone viral due to her excellent ability to provide non-partisan, easily-digestible and highly-engaging information about our democracy in her instagram stories. She is excellent at simplifying the complex when it comes to breaking down political headlines and answering questions about American government. I highly recommend following her.
