i am making a conscious decision to not watch or read anything about the attacks in paris. i refuse to contribute to the fear and degradation imposed upon us by the people who committed these atrocities; whomever they are. isis, mossad, cia. i’m not giving them my energy and attention. their power gets stronger with every post, tweet, instagram, news article, online or snail. all i need to know is that something terrible happened, and even though i cannot feel the same loss as the survivors of this debacle, i can still mourn the loss of our humanity.
