Summer is a beloved American tradition, but for many families it breaks the bank.
It’s been nearly two weeks since a gunman opened fire on the newsroom of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, leaving five people dead: Rob Hiaasen, Wendi Winters, Gerald Fischman, John McNamara and Rebecca Smith.
In the aftermath of another American mass shooting –-and one targeting journalists in particular– we asked those working in D.C., Maryland and Virginia how they feel about their personal and workplace safety.
