Cry, the bedeviled country.

I love you.

That is all.


So with you. I am still feeling physically ill -- and that's not a figure of speech; it's the literal truth.

I read something the other day that helped: this is still the country that elected Obama four years ago. There are still many good people here, and together we can fight against racism, xenophobia, and misogyny.

*all the hugs* *also crying*

*adds in many hugs*

I'm still reeling. I'd be angry, but I'm more scared for my boys and their mental health. I'm scared for my neighbors. I'm angry and depressed. I know I should stay and fight - if it was just me and hubby, that would be EXACTLY what I would do, damn the consequences. but I have my boys. And if I can get them out from under a bully that tells the world it is okay to be terrible to others, I will do so. I don't want them raised in such a country, in such a mentality.

I just don't know what else to do. And I feel like I've given up, even as that isn't what I'm TRYING to do.

*hugs you hard*

*hugs tight*

Sending hugs across the pond. I'm scared, too. And still a bit shocked. And sad. But never give up, never lose faith and hope - it's what they want, and we won't give them that!
