First we had the original Big Lie. We all know it is the one told by the trumpublicans stating President Biden did not actually win. They believe the election was stolen, even though all Secretaries of States certified election results, a cybersecurity expert said we had the safest election in history, the former Attorney General… Continue reading We Now Have Big Lie #2
Today I waited in line for a box of food with someone I know. She is on a fixed income and has a child, and the child’s family, living with them after losing their own home and job. The local food bank was giving out a box containing five oranges, three onions, a bag of… Continue reading Brought to Tears
Visiting family. Be back tomorrow.
