I’m not going to start about guns or how helpless I feel again. Just the e-mail I sent my class after reading something by Natalie Diaz that broke through.


I don’t spend much time on FB, and wish I spent less than that, but this came down the line today from one of our poets, Natalie Diaz, re: the shootings early this morning in Orlando, and I wanted to share it with you.

We’re one body and one body doesn’t hurt itself.

50 people are dead not for who they hurt but for how they loved: they love the way I do

Be safe, be kind,
