This week’s news has left me overwhelmingly sad and incandescently angry. I seem to have the seven stages of grief mixed up, or maybe they are all coming my way at once. I am too sad and angry to write a knitting post, something that normally makes me smile. I continue to knit. It turns out that sadness and anger make for very productive knitting. I have two finished projects to show you and quite a few new projects on the needles. I will tell you all about them when I get my words back.
I’m so totally with you right now… I even stopped reading papers or watching the news. Such a disgrace
I agree completely.
I am also avoiding the news for a few days to try to preserve my mental health.
I am in Sydney Australia and here so many women are feeling for you and standing with you .
Thank you. I am in South Africa currently, and everyone is perplexed and dismayed.
I, too, am devastated and worried about the future of my country. I always have and always will respect the presidency, but I cannot and will not respect the president-elect. I will take the same stand as Elizabeth Warren who said: “We will stand up to bigotry. No compromises on this one, ever. In all its forms, we will fight back against attacks on Latinos, African-Americans, women, Muslims, immigrants, disabled Americans — on anyone. Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this,” she said. “Not now, not ever.”
Great quote. I am an Elizabeth Warren fan girl myself. I’m trying not to give in to despair, but it’s hard.
I did not vote for Hilary because of her sex, but because she was the only means of preventing the election of someone with no integrity what so ever. I too am devastated.
I think it will be a long, dreary few years ahead.
