New Kittens, and my 100 year old father’s passing have taken up most of my time.
Also, I’ve been depressed about politics, and feeling frustration with my own unimportance and impotence. I can’t seem to inspire anyone to get more involved politically, and I understand their apathy. It seems so hopeless. I care desperately about our planet’s future, and about injustices in our world that could lead to further oppression, but see no other way to combat the direction we are going besides us all banding together and demanding change.
I had such high hopes for Occupy, but the Government nipped that in the bud, and squashed many of our hopes. IMHO the “Occupy Brand” has been wrongfully sullied, but nonetheless, no longer has a pristine and pacifistic reputation.
All those people who came out last fall are still around…We have the numbers, and we could “win”, but not without the courage to stand up and be willing to die for these causes.
I know, it’s heavy to picture dying for a cause, but our WORLD is dying, and soon, too. If we care about our future, we need to do something about it.
