In regards to… everything this week. Dallas, Mexico, the middle east, lots of less reported on stories of horrible violence in the US.
Well that’s not entirely true, I just don’t know what to say, or maybe how to say it. It’s all being said. I don’t know how to contribute anything to the conversation.
So yes, I’m sitting back and not engaging. I’m informed, I know what’s going on. I just don’t need to see fifty articles on it every time I open up Facebook, so I’ve been avoiding Facebook for a few days.
It’s awful. I’ve basically lost faith in my country for so many reasons. It’s pretty clear that a majority of Americans think that there is nothing wrong with our country, and that more violence is what we need. We tried to make some real, meaningful change but we got stomped down like we have numerous times in the past. People are trying to keep that attempt alive, insisting that “the revolution continues”. I don’t know whether to admire or pity them, because I think they’re clinging to an idea that is on life support.
So maybe things just aren’t bad enough. Maybe things need to get much, much worse for people to wake up to the problem. I don’t know. In any case, this country clearly isn’t ready to change yet.
Or maybe I’m just letting it all get to me.
