Us Against You,
a story of a hockey town as it falls
written in such a "real, true and honest" way,
you end up thinking this story might just be yours.
"People will say that violence came to Bear Town that summer,
but that won't be true, because it was already there."
I come from a place of bears, hockey and rinks,
and I know the trap of skating around trying to protect the stupidity of an idea,
in what you think should be real.
It isn't. Let me just say that straight. It just isn't.
This story, like most of our stories, layer up enough questions
to get us asking ourselves a few,
like what has to happen before someone wakes up to the reality
of being so very wrong about so many things?
The kind of cold that sets more than a chill.
good people do terrible things in the belief
that they're trying to protect what they love.
hating one another is so easy
that it seems incomprehensible that we could do anything else.
people have to be allowed to have something to live for, to believe in,
in order to survive everything else."
Us against You.
"This is the story of what happened afterward."
