There’s a photo of me as a kindergartener dressed in a plaid jumper and tights. In one hand, I’m clutching a sign written in my messy child’s scrawl that says “Augusta,” and in the other hand, a red plush stuffed lobster. The photo is from a class play about the state of Maine. Each student recited a fact about our home state for the assembled audience of our families. In the photo of me from that day, I’m beaming with pride about getting to hold the lobster, one of the most important symbols of our state.
