Y'all can skip it if you don't want to read a political post, but I won't be silent.
I was told, months back, that my political anger and frustration was all due to my hormones.
Not this imbecile that got elected despite losing the popular vote by millions. Not because he bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, made racist comments numerous times-- I could go on and on with that.
But it was never hormones. DUH. It was and is me, loving this nation, and my heart breaking as I watch it being torn apart. As hate comes bubbling up, nazis not even afraid of being seen, discovered, not bothering with hoods or any disguises. Not thinking there are or should be any repercussions to their actions. White privilege, yes it is a real thing. Look at the pictures from the Charlottesville protests. Look at those men holding torches, rabid in their hatred, uninhibited in it, unafraid.
Hormones? NO. And being silent is being complicit. Being silent is accepting and even condoning. I won't do that. I haven't done that. It might have cost me more than it should have, but I will not be silent while good people in this country are assaulted and ignored, while nazis are allowed to kill and not be called out on it.
I will nag everyone here to vote, to sign petitions, to march and walk and NOT BE SILENT.
l'll urge people in other nations to speak up as well.
This is our world, y'all. These are people, full of hatred, harming others who want equality. Running over them. What kind of human being does that? What kind of hatred exists that such a thing happens?
So there will be political posts-- it's part of who I am. Skip them if you want to, but I am asking you to step up, speak out, take a stand. Don't let hate win.
And whatever you do, or don't do, I send you love, and wishes for peace.
