Reader's Diary #1745- André P. Cramblit: Semper Fi

André P. Cramblit's "Semper Fi" is an interesting look at a young Karuk woman's navigation through a country that often sees itself as literally black and white. Not being either, she must make choices as to where she fits.

I really appreciated this perspective and the quiet way it was handled. When I went back after and looked up what the title meant and saw the whole connotation to familial or group loyalty it made me appreciate this flash fiction story even more. It's not that the woman was compromising, it's that she was steadfastly maintaining her unique identity.
