As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands this month to consume a lot of media. I’ve literally been staring at the news, daily, with my eyes wide open, staring in disbelief at what is happening in the US, and even just this week in Canada.
I watched the new President get sworn into office, because that’s a piece of trainwreck history that I just couldn’t miss. I’ve watched the news each day since then in horror as he’s made decision after decision that he probably thinks are no big deal, but that are affecting the lives of so many people in very real and scary ways.
I’ve been thinking about the future of the entire planet ane the human race and how these next four years are going to be the kind of story we tell our children and grandchildren in the “I can’t believe we lived through that era” kind of way.
And yes, I do think we’ll get through this. Because even though his position is a powerful one, Love will win. It always does, doesn’t it?
I fear that there will be a flood of blood, sweat, and tears before we emerge on the other side. But that which does not kill us makes us stronger, or so they say. I’m worried about what the body count will be for this administration. We’re 12 days in.
