R.I.P.
Author: Raine    Date: 10/08/2018 12:31:32

Resist. Insist. Persist.

I was hopeful until the end, I was. and even when I knew the hope was for not, I was upset but as ok as I could be. And then Senator Susan Collins began to speak and by the end, I was having a panic attack. What she did was horrific. Why she felt the need to drag the trauma that myself and millions of women were going thru for close to an hour was cruel. She was a no and was a no from the very start. She turned a two letter word into a mean and cruel triggering of so many women who are not believed. After all of this, Collins had to give us all one more punch in the gut.

So, here we are. What once was a political party is now a group of people who relish in cruelty using their women as shields. It probably will get worse before it gets better, but I took a day away to go look at art and spend time with friends. It was nice -- and much needed.

I can breathe now. I am still down a bit and a little wobbly but I am not out. I know I -- and all of us in this fight -- can rely on those who will have our back. When one needs a break others can step in. Today, I say R.I.P. against the GOP.

Resist.
Insist.
Persist.

and

Raine

whatever energy the RW gets out of the Kavanaugh appointment will be tempered quickly as revelations continue to pour out.

Greetings, comrades!

Back from one of the finest Scouting events I have attended in a few years. (At least since Elaine Mason's Woodbadge course, 2017) MassJam 2018 is in the books!

Here is Your Loyal TriSec hard at work at 5:20 am today, making donuts for 70 staff, with my fellow Woodbadger Ron Gauld. (Troop 3, Milton).

Image is too big, link only.

I need some hope. I have been feeling too down lately.

The genie is out of the bottle.

Yay!

Pepco (our electric company) is going to trim a tree in our yard that BADLY needs trimming. That will save us a few rubles!
