I know I said I was back but now I can’t find the words. But that was a sentence. Given my one word vocabulary (fuck) on Wednesday and 2 word vocabulary (fuck me) on Thursday, I am making progress. I wrote a to do list today. 1) Read as much as possible to understand what happened. 2) Get your passport renewed just in case. That’s as far as I got.
I combed Twitter and did find links to interesting analysis articles. Well a few at least. Twitter is a mess for the most part. That is except for the alt-R and alt-L. I gleaned the alt-R won it for Trump and alt-L could have won, but Hillary. Such certainty. I don’t have it. I’m somewhere stuck between alts just left to suck on it.
And surprisingly I’m ok with that. I know I’m not alone. In fact I think I’m in the good company of people working very hard to try to understand what happened and what to do next. I do know this. There is not one answer, or 2 or 3. We have some tough work ahead. We will have to deal with the most regressive legislation we’ve probably seen in our lifetimes. We must stand up for and support those under attack. And here I am not just talking about writing. Or tweeting. There are people being verbally and physically assaulted. My body, your body may be the only thing standing in their defense from assault.
Be Strong. Be gentle.
