I am not happy. I feel bad. I am going to cry:
Cry for the homeless people.
Cry the for the boys and girls in cages on the Texas/Mexico border.
Cry for the suffering of the 1,000s of people with COVID 19.
Cry for the US Constitution, pissed on,dragged through the dirt, soon to be burned and replaced with a ticket to dictatorship.
Our country is collapsing under the weight of lies, psychosis, and treason.
I don’t know what to do.
