Apparently living in Paris for a semester has taught lost soul Jessica Roy that there’s something missing about America. “Perhaps because the US is still a relatively new country — particularly compared to France and other European nations — there isn’t a strong sense of selfhood surrounding our nationality,” she blogs for HuffPo. “I believe the American identity is something divorced from flag pins on politician’s lapels or God Bless America signs looming over Midwestern freeways.” And thus concludes our last ever post about Jessica Roy.
