Deadly "virus" hitting hard and it isn't a health issue...

Nope. It is not a health issue.

It started in the pit of my stomach and has been gnawing at my life for months. Since there actually were/are multiple health issue viruses running rampant in my community and I work closely with a wide swatch of the public, I figured I was always just fighting off the latest batch. But it wasn't like any other "virus" I'd dealt with. Very different and worrisome.

Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. This, I now realize, is something much different and it is indeed scaring me.

It's a tight ball of hate like I have never felt before. Every single day of this cretin's position of power, new, fuckingunbelievable atrocities are started, suggested, threatened, put in place that continually destroy decency, compassion, humanity, the country, the earth. Every single morning noon and night he and the wretched ilk of soulless arrogant goons called the Republican Party are plotting planning and executing treacherous foulness against the people of this nation and systematically destroying the air water land of this earth.

Every waking moment.

And I recognize now that it isn't an airborne virus that makes all my food taste terrible, all my steps harder to take and all my breaths catching in my throat. It's hate.

I actually hate these men. I. hate. Them.
I've never experienced this. Ever.
Scary as hell. Numbing. Debilitating. Anger laced. Yet I, along with millions of others, keep plodding along. I can't console or nurture anyone anymore because I have no words of comfort available now. I have nothing. My nurturing nature has been silenced. It's such a vacuum of existence. So foreign and painful with no visible wounds.

And it hasn't been two months. Not two months of this monstrous, nauseating, vile agenda.

I can only grasp at straws of hope that some who haven't been infected in the same way...some who have the security of funds and some semblace of real power and not just stubborn advocacy can and will actually do something to stop this foul virus.
(Goddess, Jesus, Buddha, God, Mother Mary, Dr. Who What When Where and How...anything!!!!!)

No, it isn't a health issue.
It is a hate issue.

Women, and our tough gig today. Wear red, buy nothing, work, or not...

Wear red. Don't buy anything. If you can't take a day off work, it is totally understandable. And commendable. Mothers cannot stop. Teachers cannot stop. Nurturers cannot stop. Women DO and because of their nature, always WILL keep the world turning while other forces strive to disrupt it and them.

If you CAN make the statement, do it.

"Harm to none" has always been a driving force of the natural psyche of females. And that stance has always been used to knock us down and delegitimize our worth...to control us. Our nature is used against us in hideous ways. "They" count on it.

To make the point we must show in realistic ways just how essential we are. We must somehow make it known that we are powerful. Economically and spiritually. It's a very tough task. The balance is immensely difficult.

We have to keep the mothering, teaching and nurturing uninterrupted and secure while forcibly making the economic and business world take serious note of our value.

Frustrating gig.

Both aspects of the resistance are at force today. Both commentaries are essential. And it is women who must make the difference.

Wear red at work, make your presence visible, bring attention to your vitality and importance.

See us...or see our absence. Both must happen!!
