The US Represented Weekly Update

Hello USR members and guests,

Happy Sunday. We had a good week at US Represented and enjoyed sharing it with you. In our Monday Perspective for Hire column, Sami Kear shines a light on the dark underbelly of a disturbing cultural phenomenon in “Rape Culture: An Inexcusable Injustice.” Anna Bankson’sNot Just Reindeer: Sweden’s Midsummer Festival” analyzes an event that challenges cultural stereotypes. In “Millers’ Crossing,” Janele Johnson points out that moths aren’t as intriguing as some writers would like us to believe. In “Single Parenting in the 21st Century,” Katy Stambler offers some honest and helpful insights on how to raise a kid these days. In our Friday installment of Emily Badovinac’s novel, Deep Red, Chapter 12, Marlo’s questions continue to press on her as her mood becomes darker and the full moon looms ever closer. Jake Douglas’s “Winning through Non-Participation” suggests that America can improve its situation through “the refusal to acknowledge and / or become involved with authority and the system in which it binds us.” In Eric Stephenson’sWorth the Effort,” illness changes Robert’s life for the better.

Please keep being who you are, thanks for keeping us company, and we’ll talk to you soon.
