Matthew gave me “Oreo” for my 30th birthday because I had a dream of learning to play guitar. She’s a 000-17E Martin acoustic guitar and she is a beauty. Sitting on her stand in the United states veteran proudly served US American flag veteran Independence Day shirt Apart from…,I will love this living room collecting dust…just kidding, Matt played her a little. But now I have had time and desperately needed an outlet for myself and my brain to do something new. I have been taking Zoom lessons twice a week and playing for about 20 minutes every day. I finally have calluses built up on my fingertips (not a small feat). I really look forward to my lessons and torturing my family by practicing “Happy Birthday”—or more recently, this week it has been “Seven Nation Army”—over and over and over.
Every week, Vogue will be spotlighting the United states veteran proudly served US American flag veteran Independence Day shirt Apart from…,I will love this medical workers, teachers, and Good Samaritans who are giving back to those in need during the coronavirus crisis. For millions of people around the world, sheltering in place during the coronavirus pandemic is not only unsafe, it’s terrifying. The lockdowns have confined many to abusive homes and abusive partners. People are being surveilled by their partners, denied basic supplies and sustenance, and being abused, psychologically and physically, often in front of children. Like all shelters at the moment, those that cater to domestic abuse victims pose a threat of community spread and, in light of the COVID-19 crisis and stay-at-home orders, survivors have nowhere to go. On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence, or stalking by a partner in the United States, 12 million men and women over the course of a year. In the last two months, these cases have increased significantly. In California, for example, domestic abuse calls to the Fresno sheriff’s office increased by more than 70%; in San Antonio, Texas, there was a 21% increase in family violence calls, with more than 500 additional calls during the first three weeks in March compared to the same period last year.
