We are becoming even more and more desensitized to the random violence that afflicts our country.

As a teacher, I watch in horror and think of the scenarios for escape as the TV assaults us again and again with tales of violence.

It cannot be a chance happening that this violence has occurred with the unleashing of negativity found with the new régime in Washington. A régime that pretends to be founded on God and country but yet has undertones of racism and hatred has brought about nothing but more sadness.

There are no apologies for situations and everything the administration does wreaks of illegality. The electoral tampering that is not dealt with, the refusal to admit Russia’s role in it, and the even the nastiness of the government for refusing a Supreme Court candidate put forth by the previous administration. Nothing seems right.

I have never in my life seen an administration that is as uncaring in regards to what the public seems to feel. I am incessantly amazed at the lack of concern for the approval rating. Marches and resistance ensue and yet the government doesn’t notice and/or care for what is happening.

This blog post, in and of itself, is indicative of the situation in this country. Despite the people’s disdain for what is happening, and despite the fact that they make it known to their representation and contact those in power, there is no recognition of the wrongs or of the unhappiness of a huge part of the population for what is going on.

How is it possible that there remains a segment of our population that is oblivious to what the so-called government is perpetrating on its population? How is it that people seem to think that what is happening is okay?

A change cannot come soon enough.
