Whole lot of people are unfriending me this past week. It could be Kashmir, could be too much reporting on human suffering in general. I have to wear a dental night guard because anxiety about it all causes me to grind my teeth furiously. I ground one molar right out. But witnessing & writing about oppression is a whole lot different than living with it. If not us, then who will stand with those who have been silenced?

(Now if it’s my politics or my attitude they reject, they can stuff it.)
