Closer to Home (Contains Potentially Triggering Content)

It's a holiday weekend here. A few other countries have one as well. But if you don't, make the best of it.

We try to stay away from all triggering stuff as much as possible. Yet, here's something that needs to be mentioned.

In our area, we've had some break-ins and two murders up the road. Last night, there was a break-in and shooting here. We're just really staying focused and taking responsible steps to protect ourselves.

How's life in your part of the world? Are you seeing more trauma aorund you due to the global depression (call it what it is)? It seems like despite this happening, nobody wants to talk about that.

It's not just vets who deal with PTSD. 10% of the Stateside population has it. Why not talk about it?

Because maybe part of it is the old pull-youself-up-by-your-(fill in the blank) and get on with it. Nobody wants to hear about it. Then, nobody can be bothered to work together and actually change stuff. That's been analyzed to death. So no point in rehashing it.

We're not going to give free plugs to the nutcase the-world-gonna-end-tomorrow-so-buy-an-AK47-now fringe. Yet, how do you keep it all in balance?

Nobody else wants to talk about it? Then we will.
