I think I understand now.
I think I understand why the last four years, and especially the last year, have been the way they have been.
It’s your quote, when you were asked about Trump’s claim of election fraud.
“The future will take care of itself.”
That’s why, isn’t it? That’s why environmental protections have been rolled back, why we haven’t seen a second stimulus check, why the various injustices around the world are just going to continue, aren’t they?
Some people — not all by far, thankfully — have gone so long just assuming things will take care of themselves — kicking the can down the road — that it’s just easier to continue that way. Changing your way of thinking and doing? Future people will do that.
We can’t continue this way. We won’t survive if we do.
We need to change. Now. We need to take care of the future.
Hi, y’all. I’m Laura — mom of three daughters, writer of one LGBTQA+ romance novel (Repair, for which I’m searching for an agent and/or publisher, and I’m happy to talk to people about it), and frequent ponderer of things.
Pleased to meet you all.
