I'm a little lost.

I wasn't sure what path I was on before but as we've finally started getting our shit together in my house I was sorting out a plan. I'd started volunteering a little again. I thought I'd found a useful and fun place to give a little time and money to.

Now I'm confused again. What can I do? What is my part in mitigating this hideous new reality? I'm trying not to be hyperbolic but every piece of evidence seems to indicate that I'm in line with reality.

The charities I'd settled on seem like frivolous extras in what is now a crisis situation.

I am so heartbroken about the choice this country has made and I'm terrified of what this moment in time means for what is next in our history.

Pictures that now punch me in the gut.

A, I am feeling the same way. I am lost. I know that my individual support for a handful of students is ultimately not even close to what needs to happen. We need large scale, legislative power and grassroots activism, but I am not sure where to start. I trust that I will find my way, but I am still overwhelmed. I keep hoping that I am out of line, unrealistic about my fears, but each new day brings a new story that I simply can't accept belongs to the narrative of my country.
