The sad burden of giving a f*ck in 2016
Jamie Varon

Ditto, Jamie, to everyone’s comments here. I wish I had half of your clarity at your age and the courage to share mg voice with such confidence then as you do now.

I’d disagree on one thing though…giving a f$@?! doesn’t suck: it’s liberating and fuels the compassion and hope that underlies what’s amazing about being human. It may mean carrying a heavier shield against the excrement, but us warriors for human decency and compassion sign up for that duty. I feel empathy and sympathy for those who flail so at their own peril. That always helps reduce the suck factor. Xx Please keep up the truth in your words.
