I’ve watched the news. I’ve read all kinds of news sources. I’m disgusted, upset, and frustrated. I can’t even stomach the hate and ignorance I see in people. It’s not easy to bite my tongue, but I do it anyways. On several occasions, I’ve written entire posts on how I feel about the situation, but every time I finish a piece of writing, I cut it because I feel that my words aren’t able to bring justice to my feelings. My current state is best summarized through the words of another.
‘If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor’ – Desmond Tutu
