A friend of mine on Facebook and in real life posted this picture this morning.
I love it and I understand it but it seems to me that humanity has for the most part fallen off that thin line completely and now plunges deep into the darkness below. Neither brain nor heart seem to matter to so many who choose instead to trust in the murky depths of hate and ideology.
The pure meanness and spite of some folks astonishes me and nothing else seems to make sense to explain Donald Trump or governors who refuse to accept Federal funds for health care or lawmakers who want to dictate where people pee and poop. Meanness, spite, and should I add a complete willingness, nay desire! to stay in the darkness of ignorance and denial.
Or maybe I'm just having one of those days.
And maybe I need to stay off the internet where I see things like this.
A mother of twelve who marches through Target with a Bible in her hand, warning that Target's inclusive restroom policy will lead to the "devil-raping" of her children and who has probably never given one thought to the fact that we are quickly (if have not already) reached the point of no-return when it comes to having a planet whose environment can sustain human life as we know it which is going to affect those twelve precious children of hers far more than transgendered people in restrooms ever will.
I'd say bless her heart, but fuck that shit.
So how are YOU today?
