I don’t know about you, but I’m scared, angry and overwhelmed with what is happening and how quickly it is happening in our country.
I’m also exhausted. From marching, calling my senators and yours, emailing, writing letters, reading the latest atrocity committed by the president and talking about it with friends and family.
But, I’m not going to stop. Sure, sometimes when I make a call or send an email I think, “How naive am I? This isn’t going to change anything.” But it will. It has. There is power in protest and resisting and in numbers. There is power in doing something to change what is happening.
None of the things Trump has done in the last week and a half are normal, legal or moral.
Now is the time to volunteer with a human rights organization, donate money, make phone calls and to stay informed. Read the Washington Post and the New York Times. Donate to the ACLU. Do what you can. Don’t give up.
We’re all busy and tired and we all have our own struggles. It’s easy to ignore what’s happening when you have a job, a family, health issues, etc. But now is the time to be vigilant. Now is the time to let our elected officials know we aren’t falling in line. We won’t re-elect them. We will sue, we will fight.
