The Mask You Live In

Carolyn’s note: Sounds like a relevant topic in 2020, with the strength of the women’s and #MeToo movements, for youth growing up male in America now. I grew up in rural Hawaii with 2 brothers (no sister, who was a stillbirth), and I raised an only child/son here in Tucson, Arizona. Thus I was surrounded by concerns about raising a male child, having experienced two brothers (one older, one younger) confront their challenges of dating, the Draft (during the Vietnam Conflict), career choices/changes, emotional challenges, having children or not.
