I wrote and drew this after a walk on an early spring evening in Montpelier, thinking of a close friend who is due to have her baby in June of this year. I wondered at how the narrative of these events would change and evolve as time began to separate us from them. How will children who are too young to know be told of this experience that both shook our communities and brought us closer together? More importantly: what would we leave out of that narrative? What do we still have to learn?
