This morning I listened to news reports about the shooting at the community college in Oregon and then I looked online at photos of Syrian refugee children sleeping out of doors.
And I'm basically ready to give up on humanity.
I think about the students in Oregon and I see my students. I look at those terrified kids sleeping out of doors and I see my kids.
And what really sucks is that the problems seem so huge and overwhelming and impossible that instead of feeling spurred to action, I feel tired and scared and sick to my stomach and I just want to go home and hold my babies and never leave my house.
Not exactly the way I planned to start my weekend.
