Heartbroken and Overwhelmed…

On top of the status quo* election results, we got word today about a situation in which someone very close, whom I love dearly, is in major trouble for doing the right thing. This person has spent their entire life investing in some of “the least of these.” The world is topsy turvy, when junk like this happens.

The most frustrating part is there is nothing I can do or say that makes it any better.

I haven’t just sat and cried in a long time. My streak is over tonight.
