3:00 a.m. and I find myself suddenly wide awake.

I can’t believe my country is killing innocent people in drone strikes in countries with which we are not even at war.

13 years old and he was killed by a cop for playing with a realistic-looking toy gun.

Running toward the cops for help, the black athlete was shot dead. The crime? I guess RWB, i.e. running while black.

Asking for help at the front door after an accident with her car, she was shot dead by the homeowner. The crime? I guess it must have been AFHWNW. i.e., asking for help while not white.

This doesn’t feel like the land of the free I believed in as a child. And now folks would prefer to provoke war with Iran rather than press for diplomacy.

Nope: I’ve got to stop these thoughts. Get myself a cup of warm almond milk and a handful of raw cashews. Go back to bed. Read articles in Psychotherapy Today – ways to be helpful in healing myself and others.

Get sleepy. Go back to sleep.
