The 2nd class train from Nice, France, to Ventimiglia, Italy, is overflowing on this sunny weekday morning in September. Suddenly a loud conflict erupts in the vestibule. Several people skitter away to find other places to stand as a young man argues with two security guards and a handful of conductors.
Sitting on the other side of me at the counter at JuneBaby, I chat with a young Black woman vacationing in the beautiful PNW. She asks what I do, and when I tell her I advocate for more love and less fear in the workplace she responds, "Oh wow. We need that in healthcare! The healthcare system that I work in is so full of fear and intimidation."
