Everything I read about Donald Trump and his presidency makes me want to scream.
Nothing has felt completely right since the election.
Or, to be truthful, even vaguely right.
And I keep asking the same question.
How the fuck did we get here?
Which is the question everyone asked after the election and no one, to my knowledge, has been able to truly answer it but it seems to me that it all boils down to ignorance and hate.
And in my mind, hate is due to ignorance so...ignorance, I guess.
Which is only going to grow worse, seeing as how this administration seems bound and determined to destroy whatever good there is in our educational system while at the same time rewarding Betsy DeVos for the many millions of dollars she's funneled into the Republican party.
A vile and evil twofer, a done deal with the devil.
But hell. I'm preaching to the choir here and I know it.
Sometimes I just have to say it all out loud.
Well. So I've said it. So what?
I think I'm tired today. Just life and perhaps the weight of 62 springs behind me.
There is still so much good in this world, in this country, and in this community. I know that.
I am glad of it and if anything holds me up, it is love and it is knowing that in no way, in no aspect, am I alone.
Neither are you.
The slogans write themselves these days.
