I'm sorry, I struggled!
 Forever (Always & Forever Book 2) Kindle Edition - Kindle Alexander
*verified purchase April 2020* I loved Always, and I waited for so long for this, the followup, so very long. And I struggled. It took me 2 months to read this, I had to read a little bit at a time, because I found it such hard work and I have no flipping idea WHY! It is a lovely story, I did love the feathers thing. Both Robert and Landon have their say. I just . . . don't know! I did finish it though, so . . 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

I love the idea of poetry as a wake-up call, unlocking ideas and emotions that let you see who you are and what you want.

Non-book post: Protest tonight

My racist little town that had a KKK rally as recently as 2007 is having a Black Lives Matter protest tonight, and a lot of the discussions around it are horrifying. People against the protest don't seem to realize that they're the ones jumping instantly to threats of violence.

 

One thing I've noticed is that people seem to be fine talking about shooting protesters because they've already put them all in an Other category. "The protesters aren't people from around here, they're bused in from elsewhere. They're antifa." Everyone I know of who's going either lives in this area, grew up in this area, or otherwise has family and friends in this area. The organizer doesn't live here anymore, but he grew up here.

 

One thing I've started doing, anytime someone brings up "antifa" in their comments, is pretend I'm stupid and say something like "Oh wow, so you're pro-fascist?" It's been fascinating to me how many people don't realize that "antifa" is just an abbreviation for "anti-fascist" and not the organized terror group they seem to think it is.

This is creepy in an enjoyable sort of way. 

 

Personally, I'm already looking forward to the revenge these girls will take when they finally figure out what's going on.

 

Meanwhile, one of the things that makes it extra creepy is that much of the instruction that they're being given would have been commonplace in 1950's finishing schools.
