The increase in percentages is alarming and outrageous, Jim. This information definitely needs more mainstream coverage. Thanks for posting this and for the tag. I don’t do Twitter but will repost on Facebook.

And, yes, it does appear that our citizens are becoming numb to assault after assault, lie after lie, outrage after outrage. Admittedly, I sometimes avoid many news sources I listen to or read because I am overwhelmed with anger and deep sadness.

Sometimes, we need a break before we break.

But, in between those breaks, we need to pay attention, stay active, be advocates, give support, and express our outrage.

The assaults on fairness, common decency, and equality won’t stop if we stop.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
