I started A Walk Across America (I heard about it via the Sketchnote Army Podcast with Patrick Rhone) and this line from the second chapter really struck me. I was reading the second before and had this gnawing feeling in my chest “Was the post-Vietnam US similar to today?” I can’t answer this for certain, but lines like this make me wonder if there are some echoes in our world today.
