The morning after the election I had a doctor’s appointment. The doctor recommended an over-the-counter medication to me, so I went to the nearest CVS to pick some up. A pharmacist with a heavy Chinese accent helped me find the best and least expensive generic, which I took up to the cashier, a young brown-skinned woman in a hijab. After paying she said the usual, “Have a nice day.” I said, “I’m trying to.” We looked at each other, and she said, “I almost cried.” Then I went out to the car and cried until I could compose myself and drive home. .
