Do you guys feel this way? Like every time you look at the news or Twitter or Facebook it feels like the world is on fire, and more terrible things are happening? And like it’s really hard to figure out ways to make it stop or to make things better? I took Gus off to the Wellington branch of the Women’s March on 21 January, but it was small in comparison to the international marches, and nobody seemed to know what we were protesting against. Still, it felt good to take part in an historic moment, even if the real historic moment happened the next day in another country.
ActionStation have very helpfully made a list of things we can do to help refugees – I’ve done number 1 and 2, which are quite easy.
