I’m depressed this weekend and I don’t think I’m alone.
I feel overwhelmed by life in the United States.
How sad to watch intelligent people defend the rise of cruelty, lies, and chaos.
Trumpism plays havoc with my DID because this is the abusive world of my childhood: the racist bullies with swastikas and white robes; homophobes who murdered gay men with impunity.
The 1960’s was a time when it seemed the only lives that mattered were the lives of straight white men but we did have a government that imposed the rule of law; we did have a government the people could petition for change.
The Trump Administration at war with Americans who value human rights and the rule of law.
His cult members no longer recognize their fellow citizens human.
The United States has a sickness and it’s destroying our lives.
How sad to progress this far only to come back to life as a dehumanized target in fear for his life.
We are human.
After all these years, why does this still need to be said?
