The news on any given day is horrible. Leaders in Washington continue to bow down to the idiot in chief and act as though he has the slightest bit of intelligence. People get shot on a daily basis with guns that contain the kind of destructive power our Forefathers never imagined. Schools are armed camps. Space under a bridge is considered housing for immigrants being held by ICE. Powerful men continue to abuse their power by attempting to overwhelm women into screwing them. It just goes on and on.
It has gotten so bad that I find myself not wanting to even look at the news anymore. In fact – and I can’t even start to explain how disturbing this is to my psyche – I have so had it with the national and international news that I almost – ALMOST – clicked on a story about one of the Kardashians.
But I stopped myself before I did and told myself I wasn’t going to let them win. I wasn’t going to become a Click Bait junkie in order to avoid the real world of news. No, I wasn’t going to give them that satisfaction.
So if you want to know where I am, I’m in my bedroom, under the covers, reading a book on life in Tudor England. Hey – at least it’s better than clicking on the Kardashians!
