Oh brother

Having a moment of complete fear about introducing another child into this madness. It will probably pass once William takes his nap (if) and I get some time to rest but right now I’m fearful for my sanity.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

Update: Ash the turtle is still cute. We think she’s an AshLEY not AshER. :) She’s about the size of my palm now and we are in the market for a bigger aquarium for her.

Cece lost her first tooth! She cried many baby tears growing that sucker as a poor miserable baby and now it’s out of her gums … being a parent is weird.

Someone I know on Facebook just shared an article of a cop defending cops. Not that it is a terrible article, but seriously, posting that on Facebook right now is just like declaring you don’t believe in the corruption in Ferguson. I know a lot of cops. Some I’m related to. Guess what? Some of those cops are also bigoted and/or racist. Not all of them, but some. Not all cops are bad but writing that on Facebook right now is like posting an article about how not all men rape during a rape scandal. True… but now’s not the time to be speaking up about it. Stop standing up for those who don’t need defending.

Filed under sigh she's also always posting bible quotes just saying
