Before the election I had written and scheduled three weeks of blog posts on various subjects. But when I look at them now, in the light of the dangerous situation in our country they seem, well, meaningless. I am still so damn astonished that this happened. That so much ugliness and evil lurked beneath the facade of our society. Astonished isn’t even the best word. Horrified is much more accurate.
I am not a hugely political person, except with my feelings and my words. And yet I am so terrified that I am willed into action. Here’s something I saw from a Pantsuit Nation member:

Hard to find hope but I think the only way to access any hope at all is through action.
I’m going to be posting pieces that are not about politics. It doesn’t mean that the current situation isn’t top of my mind, just that I can’t write about it every day. I’ll burn out and so will you.
But I WILL continue to write about it. And think about it. And act.
As I hope you will.
All suggestions for action are welcomed in the comments below. Let’s fight to get our America back.
