How are you all coping and How are you doing it?

Not a day goes by now that I'm not silently screaming multiple times every time I pay attention to the current state of our countries affairs. I find it have had to curtail my news intake as my body just can't take the anger and anxiety I feel every time Trumps face or voice appears. Feeling enraged is fricken exhausting. I'm trying to find other distractions but the news junkie in me keeps going back in for that fix even though it sickens me. My public school teachers taught me in the sixties that a good citizen is an informed citizen and old habits die hard. I send what money I can to blue candidate, call and write my Congressional offices and feel like I talk to others about these criminals in the White House incessantly. I am coping the best I can by watching Korean Dramas and being mindful to pay attention to other things. I no longer can keep the news on in the background or in the car. We are living in strange and dangerous times....and it just sucks.

How are you all doing?

I encourage you to take action if you support moving impeachment forward

As far as I can tell today only one of our states Congress-members supports Impeaching Trump, Pramilia Jayapal. If you like me live in a blue district it's easy to become complacent sometimes and assume our more Progressive reps are supporting impeachment. That is not the case. Many, like my rep DelBene are sitting on the fence and making no comment. This seems totally unacceptable to me considering the fact that their re-election is probably not a concern. They need to hear from us loudly and clearly that we expect them to uphold the Constitution and speak out about the Presidents unlawful behavior and what they intend to do about it. Today there is still nothing on DelBene's website about her position. This is Shameful
