Today I got up, showered put on a face and got dressed. I got out of my house for a quick minute with my friends and that helped so much. Depression really, really sucks. I wanted to write something funny because it makes me happy to laugh and share. Iím trying; I really am because I miss that part of my life. Hang in there with me okay? I need yooz.
Even though I know like-minded people who are as disgusted with the new regime installed by Putin, I still feel so alone and need to vent. I plan to go outside and yell at the horrors that we will suffer under Trump and his band of villains, who will rape our country. They have literally made me sick but I know I canít continue this way, so Iím seeking the help I need.
Iím sure Iím not alone in feeling this way so I strongly encourage you to ask for help, itís out there. You are needed. I love you.
Up North here itís frozen and when I tried to go get my mail I kept sinking into the snow and almost got stuck, so I called off my big expedition halfway there. I feel all pitiful! I didnít want to fall on my icy driveway because Iíve already had two spinal fusion and I have metal in my right arm.† I donít want another surgery, not for even a pinkie fracture. Mexico and a cozy little hut near a white sand beach are seriously calling me.
Since Iím still here I Ďspose I could contribute to the Resistance. I am an armchair activist for† reasons due to my health, but I know I have to do something! I canít and wonít just observe our Turtle Island be destroyed by Trump and cronies. The entire world is laughing at us and I agree with their views. Our beloved country is being ridiculed.
The thing is I am being blocked from certain websites and live feeds that have to do with activism and the Resistance. It has never happened before and Iím anxious that I donít have access to my news. I am far from being a hacktivist and my laptop can do way more than I care to know about, but itís my main source for current news. So this is a thing: an evil thing because the new government is suppressing us.
I donít remember calling on anyone to incite violence or any form of harming others. I have written about protest and the Standing Rock Protectors and I believe Iím being targeted because of my column.
You may scoff, but I know what Iíve experienced and I donít need your validation. We the People are already being stifled, suppressed and spied upon. Welcome to 1984. Steve Bannon & Co. is already discrediting the media. A madman now has the nuclear codes. He advocates torture and is profiling immigrants. I am sad we Indians didnít do that from the get go. We should be the wealthiest people in the USA, but we donít value paper over responsibility and integrity for our Mother Earth and our culture.
Under this fascist regime we only have each other. Iíve been caching commod beans and rice. Did yooz know I was in a hurricane? *wink* yeah Hurricane Wilma Yucatan Peninsula 2005. I was in a hurricane shelter with 1100 other people for five days and there was limited everything. It was an interesting social experience, like survival of the fittestÖnot a Ďrealityí show at all. It got hot in there and not just because of the heat and humidity. Everyone got all territorial in the swelter shelter, lemme tell ya.
Imagine being all sweat with no way to communicate and next to complete strangers whom are just as terrified as you are. Thatís what we are in for. Iím sorry to be a voice of gloom and doom but what freedoms we have are now being eliminated.
So, my advice to myelf and you is just enjoy and give thanks for what we have now.
Then we get up and shower, put a face on or braid your hair and dress for the Resistance. Weíre all responsible for this travesty of a president so letís fix this. We canít go back to the horrific past and whatever I can do I will.
I still have hope for all of us when we stick together. Geez, I sound like a sports coach, ay? Well, I said I will do whatever I can so if youíre inspired good for me! Ay! Iíve been calling my representative, so please do that. You can start there. There are multiple ways to resist this insanity.
Happy Heart Day Yaíll!!!
