I feel myself approaching some kind of critical mass similar to what you describe. I’ll get up in the morning and read about the latest unarmed black kid to be gunned down by police or some gun fetishist, and feel like it’s crazy to just close my news feed now and go to work like it’s just another day while this continues to happen all around us. I can’t imagine how I’ll be able to bring myself to engage in small talk with coworkers while these atrocities hang in the air. I do manage to get to work and focus on the business at hand, for a while. But the feeling that I should be doing something to try to help change things weighs heavily on me. Not sure what I’m going to do, but doing nothing and pretending everything is alright is no longer an option.
