These last few days, it is hard for me to keep up the rallying cry to mamas to go out and do something - though certainly we need to keep doing it.
The news is just kind of overwhelming lately. Baltimore. Nepal. Our governor calling up troops because he is worried the feds are trying to steal our guns (dude - if you are not from Texas and haven't followed this story, it is not a joke). A state representative from Tyler trying to make it the law of the land that women have to carry dead and dying fetuses to term whether they want to or not. I love Bernie Sanders but am afraid he is going to get someone like Rand Paul elected. Ebola can apparently be transmitted through the semen of survivors for much longer than people knew. All that sort of thing.
I am still calling my representatives and sending the e-mails and such, but could really use some good news or a period of peace. Wouldn't that be nice?
But keep the faith, Mamas. One foot in front of the other. Together we march.
