I am tired.
I tired of of hearing US citizens make excuses for this country, this country that acts like an abusive boyfriend.
How many black eyes will it take? How many broken bones? How many literal and figurative lives lost?
When are we going to stop shrugging our shoulders in resignation and start giving up our soft and warm comforters?
And for those of us who are supposedly doing the work-when did incremental change become fashionable for the majority? When did we start to hold imaginary tea parties with our incremental changes and smile at each other as we lift our pinkies to slurp our tea?
I am tired of incremental change.
I am tired of compromise, of crumbs.
I am tired of hearing US citizens make excuses for my abusive boyfriend, my abusive boyfriend who encompasses all of a nation.
