I've avoided posting here in the last couple of months because I'm really struggling to get a grip on what's happening in America. I'm having a hard time gathering my thoughts and deciding what to do and to say.
I know I don't live in the US, but I still care about my family and friends who are living, working and raising children there. I am still an American citizen and I care about the future.
And I'm scared.
Every morning I wake up and think that things just can't get any worse.
I try to be hopeful.
However, when I read the news about a person who will most likely be confirmed to run the Department of Education by constituents of a party who care more about the party lines than the actual good of the country and the people they represent, and especially when this person obviously knows nothing about the post they are about to accept and who could give a rat's ass about children, their education or their future, it is sobering. And depressing.
And this one appointee is just the tip of the iceberg.
I don't want to stick my head in the sand. But I honestly don't know what to do anymore.
