Discussion Thread: How Are You?

I am tired and I am grieving and I am angry.

Very fucking angry.

I remain incredibly anxious about a future I have expended enormous amounts of energy to do my part to prevent, which now feels inexorable.

I am nurturing a fragile vestige of lingering optimism that our collective rage will fuel change, urgently.

I am preparing myself for what will come if that change doesn't materialize.

And I am, as always, glad for this community, in this moment. Anyone who wants to join me in another enormous virtual group hug is welcome.

How are you?
