I'm angry. I am angry about guns, lies, inaction, and meanness. I am angry at this administration for the hate-filled rhetoric. Day after day, I try to turn my anger into something useful, and I try to share information to those that may not otherwise know.
One of the greatest compliments I have been given is when a friend or family member tells me they often see what I have posted or shared so they can see what is going on. I try very hard to use reputable sources, because well, I want to keep a reputation of telling a truthful story.
I am angry that I have to try harder than ever before because we now live under a political culture of lies. That we have people out there denying that the kids of Parkland are real victims by claiming they are actors is the height of insanity.
Those high schoolers are amazing. They help cede some of my anger and give me hope. They shouldn't have been put in that place, to begin with, and yet the reality is that we are where we are.
What I think is that we are at yet another crossroads. We are at a place where people are now choosing to be a part of the solution when they weren't sure where their place was before.
We, as a nation, shouldn't be in a place where people are forced to choose and again I say, the reality is that we are where we are.
I never felt like I was alone in the fight to resist what this administration would be doing, and is doing, but I do feel better knowing that more and more people are giving voice to the resistance.
We'll right this ship, We will take our nation back to a place where we don't have to fear our democratic processes will be stripped away by those that desire and authoritarian regime.
One can be angry and hopeful at the same time.
Anyway, that's my Wednesday musing, Let's see what the day will bring us.
