New Year Musings
Welcome to 2017.
It’s a place that I don’t know yet.
It scares me a little.
The days are filled with dread as we near the ending of an era.
The era of gaining rights for LGBTQ+.
The era of the country getting a little less filled with hatred.
We are entering an era of losing what we fought for.
Losing the things that matter most.
We are finding that a lot of the world is starting to hate even more.
The racism, sexism, homophobia, and religion hating world is becoming more alive.
January 20th is getting closer and while I would love to be celebrating, I will be fearing what’s to come in the next four years.
My birthday will proceed in a weekend filled with dread.
A weekend where someone will come into immense power.
A power that I don’t think he can handle with grace and tact.
My first year out of my teens will be uncomfortable as I try to figure out who I am while the country does the same.
It’s going to be an interesting one.
Pray for the country, pray for the souls, pray for our rights.
It’s time to fight for our lives.
