The last week has not been easy for me. I watch as the country gets torn apart from the latest massacre. The kids are going to speak to their state legislatures today, for which I am incredibly proud of them and in awe of their strength and their fight.
More are heading up into DC.
They’re not wrong. When is enough ENOUGH?!
I’ve watched the arguments and the fear spreading across the country. Family, and friends, and acquaintances, and perfect fucking strangers fighting like hell on the internet and in person. Demands for NO MORE DEATHS. Arguments for second amendment rights. The right and the left slinging nasty words at each other.
That’s not doing a damn thing and today….right now. I don’t give a fuck about the arguments anymore.
I didn’t sleep last night, and what sleep I got was punctuated by nightmares. And then I get this news today:
Students arrested for threat of mass violence.
That. IS. MY. KID’S. HIGH. SCHOOL.
That post yesterday? That fear? It’s real.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
