Just be nice.

My husband is always reminding me to “be nice” when I get into one of my moods about the state of the world as we know it in 2019. I’m so tired of hearing the news lately (since the last presidential election, actually). Shootings, hatred, bigotry, racism, cheating, attempts at placing people against one another…

I blame two institutions: the government and the media.

Although I need the government and the media in my life, I do not need anyone telling me what to be or how to be. I definitely don’t need them telling me what (or how) to think! It seems in the last few hours the news has only revealed to me that the government and the media wants me to STOP THINKING. That’s not going to happen. I’m not giving up on public education or libraries. They are a part of me. I will speak and act so that they are not taken away from me, in the midst of government scams and schemes.

Please read, and decide to support causes that are important to you and your family, and the generations to come. Support humans. Support love. It’s time to act.

Thank you for reading.
