And I know you listened to Animal Lover; that one tend to strike people in an uncomfortable way, but I can't recommend strongly enough giving it lots of quality time. Lots and lots. It is so different; very sad, very subdued. But next to Not Available, it is probably their best and most important
I had to come home from work this morning for a bit after hearing the news to snuggle Burrito and have a solid cry. After a while I realized that I was loving the shit out of whatever was coming through the speaks, so I asked what it was... low and behold it was Animal Lover. Didn't strike me as uncomfortable at all, quite to opposite really. It comforted and soothed me, gave me a moment of peace on this awful day. So stoked for the show!

When the NRA controls the gun debate, things like this happen. When we allow a ban on assualt weapons to expire, things like this happen. When we have the easiest of access to killing machines, things like this happen. When we pour all funding into killing other people at war, rather than taking care of our most vulnerable citizens, things like this happen.
Although times like these make me feel completely hopeless, I always try to remember what the wise Dr. Suess once said, "Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not."
A mass shooting at a fucking Elementary School?! I can't take this anymore. Why are people more concerned and passionate about protecting their right to bare arms than addressing a mental health public crisis in this repulsive country? This is utterly devastating.
