I spent today working on library programs for Black History Month. I do this around this time every year, but this year I decided to start early. Because it feels especially important this year to acknowledge black history, women's history, LGBT history, native history, etc. etc. I couldn't bear to turn on the television or listen to the radio (do you have any idea how noisy a car is when the radio is off?!). My Twitter feed today looks like it did for much of 2016: painful, drawn out and full of death (mostly figurative) and despair (entirely literal). Now that I'm home, I plan on doing my damndest to drink the pain away. Tomorrow, we march.

With the ever escalating events on the other side of the world (two major ones today), it is becoming clearer by the day that we are entering World War Three. And now that the formerly United States of America has officially elected an Antichrist...I fear for the future. And yet my social media feeds are full of holiday bullshit and excitement over upcoming or newly released movies. I think I might be beyond anger, sadness and even numbness. I don't know what I am anymore.
