Lamott even explains that she would be worried if someone would read her first draft of her writings because of how shitty they are (Lamott 470).

I cringe at the thought of this happening to me now at 21 much less at the age of 18 and while I was still in high school.

Selders sympathized with the children—many of whom were U.S. citizens—who were “devastated by their parents being arrested and detained,” but he initially did not speak out (Riccardi). When John F.
