PARENTING, TRAVEL, AND LITTLE JOYS
There are lots of things to be mad about right now. I would suggest there's nothing wrong with being mad. It's up to you to decide what to do when you're angry.
If you are angry about a social issue, I suggest that you act to better what's making your mad - with time or money. Give your time or your money to fix it. Small amounts of money can make a significant difference in addressing an issue.
My chosen place to give in the face of my anger at the most recent wave of police brutality and systemic racism captured on video is to the Massachusetts Bail Fund. A cash bail system is immoral. Innocent people spend days, months, and even years in jail, often losing everything, because they and their families do not have the cash reserves on hand for them to be released under a cash bail system. The best thing about donating to a bail fund is that bail is a renewable resource - your donation once can be used over and over again.
Posting on Facebook is not enough. Being mad is not enough.
