The most disheartening news recently was that American-born terrorists continue to plot how to wreak more havoc around the U.S. I don’t know about you, but reading those words made me realize just how far gone we are as a society. You know just how bad it’s gotten when Canada designates the Proud Boys as a terrorist group.
Have we lost our collective soul? Are we now so driven by hate and disinformation that a white supremacist group has become so mainstream that other countries tell their own citizens that the U.S is a volatile and unsafe country? Are we so disconnected from each other that we inhabit different worlds: one where QAnon conspiracies become a daily news source and one where fact-based news reigns supreme?
“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
