Grief. Shock. Horror. If you, like I do, reach for your phone each morning to read the news with a huge sense of looming dread, terrified to read what’s happened over night, which small step forward was dismantled, who’s been hurt, ignored, and mistreated by a sociopathic president to the south, extremists, and those enabling it all through silence, ignorance, and apathy.
