Post-It II Tower Wave one week before my Birthday

Dunkel Stumm

Wahrlich aufstehen

"Just tell them the truth, sweetheart. Keep calm, don't let them rattle you.  And listen. Carefully."
                    -Lindy Chamberlain to her husband

I just watched A Cry In The Dark again last night for the first time in many years.  It occurred to me how very timely it is. Social media and the rabid court of public opinion. How fickle we are. Infinitely less interested in the truth than in spectacle and the tide of popularity.  Desperate to be indignant. And trapped inside the notion that if enough people say it, it must be so.

A question to ask might be this: "if this story/meme/post were about me or someone I dearly love, how then would I proceed?"
