Unsurprised but Devastated

No real post today because I have been reeling since the Breonna Taylor grand jury verdict was released.

Even though I started making a really concerted effort this week to schedule time to socialize with people and call them and chat, I have cancelled (/postponed) everything to mostly spend my evenings crying on the floor.

It feels hopeless but we can’t believe it is.
We knew the system would let us down but we must believe in a way to move forward, a better way.

Justice for Breonna Taylor.
Black lives matter.

Go easy on your friends and coworkers and family. The news cycle has been so much, and barely anyone has escaped untouched.
Go easy on yourself, too. Show yourself some compassion, it’ll serve you better in the long run.

If you need something pure and wholesome to put a small smile on your face through all this, please enjoy this compilation of ducklings wearing flowers as hats.
