much like our obsession w productivity.. we’re putting the world on hold while we all just put in one more day’s work.. attend one more event.. the juxta of what some of us are doing day to day (in the guise of the urgent or whatever) while many are dying is crazy ridiculous.. people say it would be ridiculous to just stop/pause (ie: superbowls, celebrations, whatever).. while we take a global deep breath in order to reset ourselves.. but it’s much more ridiculous what we’re doing now.. we just can’t see it.. because of our preoccupation w busyness/productivity/supposed-to‘s/whatever..

i haven’t truly come out of anything and i feel like i’m on borrowed time, and while we’re all sitting here in this big fancy auditorium being served coffee and pastries there are hundreds of thousands of children going thru what i went thru and worse every single second of every single day, and why aren’t we all doing more, much much more..

Someone tweeted this beautiful powerful poem yesterday @saraHendren https://t.co/AWyoKnYv1W (http://twitter.com/CathyNDavidson/status/988382989976522753?s=17)

They called to me — something between squawk and chirp,
something between song and prayer — to do something,
anything. And, like any good god, I disappeared. Not
indifferent, exactly. But with things to do.
[..]
And as I walked away, I heard one of the men call to me,
please or help or brother or some such. And I didn’t break
stride, not one bit. It’s how I’ve learned to save myself.
