First Day "Home"
Today has been the first day this week I've been able to watch the news for any length of time. There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said well elsewhere, but I am sitting in front of the tv in tears. Maybe this is why I've walked around most of this week with a sense of wanting to cry and not knowing why.
Who is valued in this country?
I wish I could say I am shocked by the blaming of the victim (why did they stay, why aren't they behaving well, etc.) but I'm not. That's the way many Americans think. It's right back to that meritocracy thing. "You get what you deserve." Bullshit.
My family and I are cleaning out our closets this week to send clothing to the hurricane and flood victims. I don't have money to offer and I can't afford time off to go help, but I can at least send clothing. I want to do something else. I know there are opportunities out there. I'm just a little overwhelmed today. I can see by my friends page that I'm the only one who's been living out-of-touch with the news this week, so maybe I'll find more there.
