Great points Justin Pickering. I agree 100% about the timelessness of the dining experience. And I really like all the values you point out.
I was chatting with a friend recently and we feel like these seemingly ordinary interactions are vital. For some people, those interactions are everything they know about race from personal experience.
I am passionate about the ordinary interactions like — public transit, lunch counters, faith life, work life, magazine covers, friendships, school — all of that. I will keep thinking about this, thanks for reading and responding! — Sam
