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.R
