So Much To Say

I have so much to say and so many posts that just need typing. Those will come. Right now, I am full of anger and grief at the separation of families at the border. The rage and grief runs deeper than I ever imagined it could before I became a mother.

The news of governors recalling  or refusing to send their National Guard troops gives me hope. The people I see defending the institutional terrorism that is separating families like this, or those prevaricating or arguing semantics give me equal parts despair and disgust. I never want to understand can cherrypick their compassion and humanity like that.

This accurately sums up my feelings:

If you’re looking for ways to help, I highly recommend ResistBot for contacting your elected officials. It takes the stress and anxiety out of it. ResistBot got rid of my excuses.

Here’s an article on other ways to help, and the ACLU has more info and resources.

So do something. Do what you have the spoons for and remember to still take care of yourself. We still have a ways to go.
