I have not enjoyed June. There have been one or two bright spots, but for the most part I have been inundated with other people’s hatreds and prejudices. Anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-gun, anti-poor, anti-women, anti-science, anti-sex, anti-South, etc. Murders of innocent people by a psychopath, murders of unarmed people by police officers, or simply people beaten up and imprisoned for no damned reason. Just an endless stream of hatred, bigotry, and injustice.
The bulk of this has come to me through Facebook. And while I think Facebook has its benefits, to me it has become, more than anything else, a source of pain and sadness.
I am… exhausted.
So it’s time for me to take a break from “social media”. If you know how to get in touch with me, and you feel the need, feel free.
