With the current state of the world, I find it impossible not to write this. I know that my blog is usually about happy, lighter topics and I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that (obviously), but I think it’s important because, as Desmond Tutu once said:
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
My favorite place to read social commentary is on Twitter, so below are some of my recommendations to stay involved with the daily happenings in the US from different points of view.
