We held our first Hard Crackers convening in Boston on March 4. Including a one-year-old, seventeen new and old friends of Hard Crackers attended. A Boston old-timer talked about his friends recovering from opioid addictions. A 7th and 8th grade teacher discussed her students preparing to walk out for gun control in the wake of the Parkland shooting, even though far more students die walking to school than at school. A few of these stories may turn into Hard Crackers blogs or articles in the next print edition.
