The photos in this book cover a small portion of events that took place in 2020/21 in the United States of America.The political climate and social unrest opened a great divide among Americans. COVID-19 brought many lives to a sudden halt with shut downs, financial uncertainty, and health concerns. The politicized debates and arguments over vaccines and mask-wearing further divided people against each other. All parties involved, regardless of their racial, social, or political beliefs, felt that they were fighting to preserve something critical. In some cases their very soul.
