#gun violence

i am grieving. it is the ache of something deep in my heart, to know what i have lost—there is a child, dead, and it wears my face and holds my aspirations in its cold little hands.

(the child does not startle at the sound of gunshots; it believes and believes and believes endlessly in what it can see and what it cannot. it leaves the keys in the locks of its heart and thinks there is nothing but goodness in the world. the child is dead now.)

there was a dagger through the child’s heart, and i bear the scar. i am not a survivor. i am something created in the wake of the death—molded and fired in an oven that grows ever hotter, and i fear in time i will become brittle and shatter away to nothing. i cannot harden my heart for fear of it breaking.

We remember Sara Blackwood, a trans woman killed in Indianapolis earlier this week. No one should ever have to be mourned in this way, and no community should have to cope with so much hateful violence.

Rest in power, Sara. To have justice will be for this to never happen again.

We found each other (over there) by @thekristen999

Read on Ao3

A combat medic and a G.I. meet during one of the world’s greatest battles. A WWII European Theater based AU.

“You sound pissed.”

“I’m not.”

“Yeah, you are.”

Eddie finished packing up his medical bag then sat on a on the ground across from where Buck was leaning against a tree. Jaw clenched, he crossed his arms over his chest. “Are you aware that you don’t wear a flak jacket with your uniform? That you’re not bullet proof?”

“I had to take out that weapon. I needed to keep you and everyone safe.” Buck sat up even straighter because no way was he going to be challenged on this. Not by Mr. I Run Onto a Battlefield Without a Gun. “And do I need to remind you that red paint in the shape of a cross doesn’t make you invisible?”

“I was also trying to keep people safe.”

“By running in the middle of a firefight. Do you think bullets are scared of you?”

Artist Uses Wind Dancers To Express Difficult Topics Like BLM Movement, Gun Violence, And Poverty In Her Stunning Paintings

Whether you’ve seen them in movies or pictures, or seen them personally, you probably know what a wind dancer is. It’s a solemn, happy stick figure that flails about in the wind near a gas station or some dollar store.

But Mamie Young saw something more in them: they stand as a comical background in contrast to all of the US’s current problems. Mamie draws them inside of these problems as some sort of comical vehicles that tell a story about the tragic events of American life, making the whole image tragicomic, sobering, and current. Behind that stickman smile lies hollowness and anxiety.

Almost became dramaturg for a show that in its first 10 pages espoused a eugenicist talking point (saying that it would be “a strain on resources” to have a child with down syndrome) and I’m not sure if it was in a critical manner so dodged a bullet. Then again the play I am currently dramaturging is about the Sandy Hook shooting and has a questionable scene where they say that the shooter just fell down the wrong path and while an actor walks out in rage over it it’s not explicitly challenged either so um…yeah

Apparently my anger towards Trump has become so great that’s it’s started showing up in my dreams.

Basically part of my dream last night

Trump was going to shoot someone - unsure who - but I had superpowers so I was able to get them to fire towards the ceiling and then get the gun from them

Then I shot Trump and became the new president

(was so much more to this dream but that parts going to stick with me forever)

I looked up guns dream dictionary on Google and here’s an interesting section of it

To dream that you shoot someone with a gun denotes your aggressive feeling and hidden anger toward that particular person. You may be trying to blame them for something. 

Update: I just looked up president cause I was curious and got this which is accurate

If you dream that you are the president, then it represents your high level of self-confidence. You believe that you can do a better job if you were in charge of things.

A goldfish could do a better job
