One’s parents, siblings, partners, spouses, cousins….most of us have *someone* in our circles who has drunk the Kool-aid.

We grieve as we witness beloveds transmogrify into ugly humans.

Hate, vitriol, intolerance, greed, ignorance, selfishness — all of it is profoundly ugly.

Beneath our grief lies the wounding of betrayal: we are betrayed by people who claim to be good/righteous/upstanding yet support actions and policies that harm others.

And we feel helpless. Because even simple acts: like wearing masks to stop the spread of Covid-19, have become weaponized.

I don’t have any answers.

All I can say is “I hear you. I see you. I feel you. I am with you.”
