I feel myself getting more and more agitated.
Bad news, and more bad news.
Is anyone else afraid of North Korea trying to destroy America????
And now he's fired the FBI director. Hmm. Who do you suppose he will put in THAT position??
Someone more inclined to cover up his connection to Russia??
Nuclear reactors? Airline disputes? Women being marginalized, over and over?
I can't watch anymore, I swear. I'm beginning to understand how it feels for people in third world countries, to live their lives in fear and anxiety.

I hate that I worry about the things that are so out of my control.
I like to feel that the world I wake up to is a safe one.
That's just not the way it is anymore.
