“No way will you label my child.” With those words, a battle to get her son the classroom attention he needs turns into an entirely new career for Monica Fabre. A postal worker adjusts to life in a remote mountain town of 35 people, and an immigrant explains the repercussions of an act of violence… The Response: America’s Story is a BBC Production with American Public Media, which asked Americans to tell us the incidents which shaped their lives – and how these have informed their opinion of Donald Trump. All the stories were submitted using just the voice recorder on their smartphones, and you can contribute to the next episode on health by emailing theresponse@bbc.co.uk In this episode you’ll hear contributions from Dave Merz, Monica Fabre, Frederick Leeper, Ray Crough, Vince Trimboli, Jasmine Krotkov, Asma Jama and George Makrauer. Produced by Kevin Core of the BBC, with Laurie Stern of American Public Media. (Photo: A young girl running and waving an American flag. Credit: Thinkstock)
