Day 18/28 Daily Illustration Challenge
Despite the happiness and joy in my own personal life, I am heartsick and devastated for the state of the world, mainly the #USA . I have taught myself to choose #loveoverfear everyday...and I am trying here. I am inspired by the people making moves over there. @emmagonzalezigx is making moves and speaking the language of so many others. I choose to hear her and join her. The greed and money imprisonment that the government there let’s lead them is UNSUSTAINABLE. How many children need to die before they make a change that may hinder the weight of their pockets and campaigns? As an educator I cannot even comprehend how schools in the #USA have to try to defend themselves from their own students. Yes, parents die. Yes, tragedy happens. We need to not only teach children how to cope with pain, but also keep them from reacting in impulsive ways when they are tempted to by making tools of destruction unavailable for them to grasp. How can we do our jobs as teachers and parents and have hope and trust and love, when the people making the “rules” are not supporting us in keeping our children safe? It’s fucking basic.
