We the people, by the people.
I may be going in on a rant today, but I promise there is a point to be made. If not more than one point. Being a woman, mother, in this day and age is difficult. You wake up each day and decide what to do with the time you have. Do you do laundry? Clean up the mess that will inevitably be recreated in a few hours (thanks toddlers)? Spend some time with your s/o? Or try to make time for yourself?
In 1960 Harper Lee published To Kill a Mockingbird (TKMB). The events of the story take place between the Great Depression and the Jim Crow era, 1933–1935. I had many opportunities to read it each year with my classes of freshmen. The novel shares a delightful story of Scout’s, the young protagonist, adventures, suspense as hints of the reclusive neighbor, Boo Radley, are woven into the plot, and a court case that reveals the inherent racism of small-town USA. The students’ interest increased as they became engaged with the characters and started recognizing the commonalities of then and now.
Dear Donald Trump, My name is Emily, you probably don't care about my name. The first time I saw you on TV was on Fresh Prince of Belleair.
Dear Biden, You are taking office in such a broken time. The unrest in this country is on a constant rise and there are hurting people across this nation. You will be given the chance to unite our country or drive it further apart. I cannot say I agree with you or even wanted you to win this election, but you did win and now you are my president. I will wish you the best and even give you the benefit of the doubt that you will do what is best for this country. I hope you will have the wisdom and discernment you will need to lead a broken nation into unity and growth. I want to see America be the land of the free, a thriving nation not one where you say something someone doesn't like your voice is silenced and your life ruined. That's not freedom in fact it is quite the opposite.
What up DJ It's been a long time I've been waiting for the day that there was even a shred of hope I would get my country back. I'm so incredibly overjoyed by the fact that this colossal dream is becoming a reality. Yet, I sit with the subtle hope you've left us with. You have created a pool of monsters who aren't afraid to been in the light. It's scary. It's damaging and shame on you.

I saw a barn owl once. I didn’t know it was a barn owl until later, when I Googled owl and I recognised the bird I had seen. I have learned since then that it is a quite common owl, present almost everywhere. But for me it was an apparition or I might call it a singularity. It looked like a creature taken from one of Hayao Miyazaki’s films. It was as if it didn’t belong to the same world I live in. It took me into another world, the way it stared at me with those dark, beady eyes. I could only stare back, with my weak eyes. I guess it didn’t like what it saw, because it soon flew and left me behind, back in my world. But I was inspired by the experience, and decided I wanted to be a superhero and the barn owl would be the symbol to the chest, the form my pride and my mission would take in front of the world. I would make special the most common owl. I’d be the Night Owl!
