This Is Not Normal

Travel bans

Closed borders

A Wall

Foreign interference in our election

Media suppression

Propaganda

“Alternative facts” (WTF????)

As a writer, I feel as if I should say something profound here. But what can I say? We are only one week into the Trump administration, and my country is already beginning to resemble the Soviet Union of Larissa’s childhood in Red Flags. This is not normal!

On a brighter note, there is a Resistance, an opposition. There are massive demonstrations. (I took part in Detroit’s Women’s March last weekend.) There are civil rights organizations. There are some brave journalists and a few brave politicians. We need more of them.

Because this is not normal!
