I am saddened and sickened by the country we live in. I'm scared for my children and the world they are growing up in.

I lived in Charlottesville several years and my family lives there now. The helicopter crashed 100 yards from my SILs house. Cville is a progressive, inclusive, and caring town. Not at all representative of the hatred and bigotry taking place there now.

My heart hurts for those injured and killed

I wish trump would have taken a concrete stand and condemned the acts of the white supremacists and neo-nazis...but instead he offered a neutral and diluted message. Now is not the time for neutrality or silence. That equates to acceptance and tolerance. But I'm sadly not surprised.

I'm really at a loss that this is the reality we wake up to on a far-too regular basis.
I'm rambling...but ...ugh.
