Promised You America
by Theo Willem
I met my first girlfriend, Briona, in 1984, who introduced me to the Ayn Rand novel, The Fountainhead. Soon thereafter the two of us chased after rainbows and skyscrapers together until we separated two years later in Dallas, Texas, Briona’s hometown.
Thirty years later, I realize I still miss Briona, and the America that once was.
