Since we are together in Chicago for Podcast Movement and the news keeps happening, we shared some quick thoughts on the Clinton email investigation and the tragic death of Alton Sterling. You can view the video on our Facebook page.
We're speaking at Podcast Movement in Chicago this week, so we are thrilled to have two great interviews to share with you. In this episode, we talk with Erin Miller about her amazing journey to have her grandmother, Elaine Danforth Harmon, buried at Arlington National Cemetary. Harmon, a Women Airforce Service Pilot during World War II, wanted her service recognized as it would have been if she were a man. Erin and her family organized and advocated, leading to the unanimous passage of a bill that allows WASPs to be buried at Arlington. We are inspired by Erin's action and honored to share her story.
In The Pearls, Beth shares her essay, Humanity First, on terrorism following the harrowing attacks in Bangladesh and Iraq this week. Finally, in the Heels, we reflect on Independence Day and the privilege and responsibility of participating in a democracy.
