There’s so much craziness going on in the world now that it appears we, as a planet, are going insane.
The US is leading the charge in support of those who deny climate change, while at the same time acknowledging that climate change related incidents are getting worse. Even more shocking is the temporarily halted program of separating families at the US/Mexico border because the trauma of such an event is something the leadership doesn’t really care about. Across an ocean, Europe continues to lament the trickle of refugees coming to its borders, despite the fact that most stay in the region they originate from. It can be frustrating, depressing, maddening that world leaders can carry on with such policies as if they aren’t inherently wrong.
If you’re feeling insane, take comfort that in a mad world only the mad stay sane.
With this in mind, the theme for July is Madness. It is our hope that an organized expression of our feelings will work as a form of collective therapy.
We look forward to hearing from you!
