How beautiful

Latte has simple rules to live by: surround yourself with everything good and beautiful, treat problems as if they don't exist, and never have an empty bottle of happy pills.

Today, she found a note that says, "It's over between us." She paused for a while, looked around the room and said to herself, "How beautiful these empty chairs are!"

Journey Into Night

...the thing that led... to their awakening — suffering
- Dr. Robert Ford, Westworld Season 1 Episode 10

Hear the Christmas carols. A prisoner was killed by cops, according to an investigation. The cops will not be jailed according to a president. We are about to approve the death penalty once again. Christmas is for the children. There is a plan to lower the age of criminal liability to 9 years old. Meanwhile, we are putting up the Christmas decorations.

I want to thank you for joining me tonight to celebrate the beginning of our new narrative. I call it "Journey into Night".

Hope in the millennials

The past days have been really trying. Seeing people turning a blind eye on moral issues has been sickening. Some look at it like it's not their problem. Some simplifies it to choosing from lesser evil where one still ends up with something evil. Either way, these people are in a privileged position. They haven't been exposed close enough to the suffering to move them to action.

I was doubtful that the rally last night would be successful. I was that hopeless, and it was raining. I never thought that millennials would even care but they do, and it gave me so much hope. The fight goes on but it's a whole lot better knowing we're not alone.
