Top State of the Union In Six

The second decade of the second millennium has been a wild ride so far, and it doesn’t seem to be  slowing down anytime soon. For SixContest #133, we wanted to check in on the State of the Union. You wrote about quarantine (“2020 passport: kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, Facebook.“-LynneWein), and reopening (“They see parties; I see masks.”-EllieAhn). You shared your thoughts about the protests (“Put money where your march is.“-jaceylane), dreams for the future (“Change: Six letter word for hope” –Solstice), and calls to action (“Vote. Your life depends on it.” –Edinrose; Raise new monuments to unity, justice.”—SF51girl). Some were optimistic (“A brighter future? Just clicks away.” –emerauds), while others’ glasses were half empty (“The future’s shrinking. Better call everybody.”-wescoll). In the end, we’re all in agreement with ElenaL.:”It’s surreal to live in America.”

Here are our Top 6 States of the Union.
