NOT MY HOLIDAY

Barack.

Jimmy.

Two from my lifetime that I don’t actively hate (and even love a little or a lot depending on what part of their presidency I am examining). 4 decades and only two don’t make me cringe.

Unnecessary war. The death toll rises. Two faced. Ego. Taking advantage of women and girls. Unnecessary war. Iran-Contra. Ignoring the largest health crisis of our time. Over 20 million lives lost, including countless artists, musicians, writers – those who make the world a little more bearable to live in.

The ones before me – slave-owners, misogynists, white men of privilege. I don’t celebrate you.
