Recently a friend posted a link to this blog post on facebook.

It says what I’ve been feeling. And I need to learn from those who are experiencing (and moving on) from the pain that I’ve been feeling.

I’ve been saying that exact same thing that Parker Palmer says…

How have I been responding, you ask? I don’t want to drag our public discourse deeper into the sewer, so I’m not going to name any names. But here’s the gist of my routine. When the latest news comes out that president-elect [name here] has appointed or nominated [name here] to serve as [title here] in his administration, I shake my head, then my fist. Then I utter one or more of the following epithets: “whited sepulcher,” “moral abomination,” “white nationalist,” “threat to our democracy,” “flaming sacrilege,” or [sulfuric expletive here].

I find myself hanging on, hoping beyond hope, that Jill Stein will be successful in her recount efforts. But maybe I just need to move on.

Maybe it’s time.  Time to pitch in and see how I can help make the future better. Time to make sure that I’m taking care of my students the way they need me to take care of them.

Read the blog post. Parker Palmer says it so much better than I.
