I've heard from a few people around that these days, it's tough to open up the news feed, that they would rather see pictures of puppies and babies to cheer themselves up, rather than reading the news.
It's tough. But you have to face it. Because it's not going away. I know it's a lot to ask, but it's tough on me as well, and many others, and we are fighting this together.
You have to light that anger, and that discontent at what's happening and turn that to action.
If you're in the US, call your Senators and Representatives. Emails and tweets are fine, but also call them. Talking over the phone (even to an answering machine) has the largest impact.
If you're in Canada or the UK, call your MPs. Tell them this is an international issue you care about and ask them to speak out and intervene diplomatically. The action committed today is not an inconsequential action that only affects domestic American politics. It affects all of us.
If you have some spare change (or any money), donate it to ACLU Nationwide. They're on the ground fighting this and they need all the resources they can get, not just now, not just tomorrow, but for the next months. I have just donated $25. I challenge you to match it (if it's financially possible) or go even further than that.
Talk to your friends who are in a better financial position than you or have better political powers than you. Urge them also to take those actions.
Whatever we do, we can't close our eyes.
Whatever we do, we can't stay silent.
