Think we’ll be living parallel lives! Everyone is planning on a big blue wave though, and I’m not. I’m scared. Some of these dudes have been in place forever, and it didn’t bother anyone. Almost half of Americans didn’t bother to vote in a presidential election. Far too many preferred the devil to a woman. Shooting black boys was okay even under a black president. And now it’s all been normalized, and now these dudes have had a taste of unrestrained power.

We have a lot of work to do, it needs to be sustained long past November. No complacency; I suspect I’ll be scared forever.
