I don't know what we do.

The people of Central and South America are suffering. Children are starving. Out of desperation fathers drag their children through days, weeks, months of walking toward any beacon of hope they can find. Little children, walking for days without food or water in the north Mexican desert. They arrive at a border station already half dead.

These are our neighbors. Instead of mobilizing support to save people in need, we put up a President who calls these fathers rapists, throws hungry frightened children into cages, and treats mothers like they are nothing but whores.

Why in the fucking blue ass hell are Americans of any sort going on about our daily business? What has happened to us? Did this country ever have any decency? Was it my imagination?

I am here watching my husband die by millimeters, trying to enjoy the love of my life for what weeks or months we are fortunate to get. But all around me everything I worked for all my life is going to shit. How do I sit this out? How can I not grab my pitchfork and yell until my voice is gone?

Our neighbors are desperate. It is not just the damn wall. It is the lack of action. The refusal to give aid.

All I can think of is loading up my car with food and water and driving to the border. What would happen if enough of us did?

My husband can't travel. He's on chemo and needs me here. I can't be 2 places at one time. What am I to do?
