Yesterday was a difficult day in America. To be honest, for the Ol’ Curmudgeon, everyday for the past year has been an overwhelming cascade of outrage after outrage. I’m stretched pretty thin, and admit–I don’t really “see” some of the Pink Nonsense that I recognize is irritating so many of you out there. See, I’ve seen it so much in the past 7 years that it seems like “old news”.
But I am reminded by so many of you–this is still VERY important. How can we expect to change the culture unless we keep up the pressure, unless we keep pointing out how wrong society gets cancer, unless we keep educating?
There is so much going on, it is like a ongoing din in the back of the brain. I write this with ALL my media turned off (I usually have at least some music on), just pure quiet, and I still hear the din in my mind. I imagine it is like this for many of you.
But I will shout and be heard above the noise, both in my head and the stuff coming at us from every device we own.
This still matters, too. My–OUR–friends are STILL dying from mets breast cancer, and every damn October that just gets buried under a lot of pink fluff and smiley races. I just..can’t…I refuse to shut up about it. My resolve is stronger than ever. How about you?
