i remember sometime last week when i was calling senators, sending scripts & numbers to friends in other states, aka truly trying to engage the “democracy” we are sold daily; i remember feeling useless. while the now psychological & legislative terror from the Trump administration hangs over our head, the abandonment of any semblance of order spells disheartening headlines & real-life fears.
i question the need for “one” solution or the “right” solution to facing the cultural conflicts we are navigating as a nation. as many across marginalized group has noted in some form: we have long known Trump’s kind has been among us. Still, this isn’t salve for the impending violence the white supremacists in the Oval will enact, here & abroad.
however you are getting by, hold onto & refine those means of survival. if you are in place to make getting by easier for someone else, please do so.
