PETE’S NEW FRIENDS. Day 36: June.
She was always as a disadvantage growing up due to her Christian parents. Christianity isn’t a bad thing except when it turns militant, so when June’s mother and father were sentenced to 20-to-life for firebombing a North Dakotan abortion clinic, it was both devastating but also an opportunity.
June got out from underneath the dogma of her extended family, moved in with an aunt in Maryland and later attended John Hopkins. In her early thirties she met a Somali emigrant named Abdikarim and they fell in love. Together they founded a ecumenical soup kitchen that serves 4,000 bowls of food to Baltimore’s homeless every week.
PETE’S NEW FRIENDS is a series of found portraits and appended fictional tales. I don’t know any of the people depicted, but you might?
