“Take care of each another.”

As you can see, I tend not to write much during the semester. Life is just too crazy. However, I cannot remain silent given the current election results and the acts of violence that have ensued. Racist, misogynist, narcissistic bigots are feeling emboldened to act on their hatred.

I am working on a piece that explains how this same very mindset and vitriol fueled my own exploitation. I will post it soon. In the meantime, I leave you with a foreboding lyric from Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” for some introspection. During a 2010 performance the band encouraged everyone to “take care of one another.” We definitely need that now.
