Thank you, Manjari Sharma, for the “Letter to America.” I am so sorry for your negative experiences. I appreciate you sharing them and hope it will make a difference.
I was thinking of another instance in your story where I would be seriously annoyed and possibly “glare” at a car owner. It was unclear in your story if your motor was on, but when I see someone’s car idling, I can not help but think they are being selfish and obnoxious. It is illegal in California because of the pollution. I am not confrontational but could see myself scowling at the offender because turning off one’s car engine when parked is a simple way to mitigate pollution and be a good example to our kids and show we care for our planet, its future, and each other.
