I think I will start writing here again. I was keeping a bit of a grief-log at OpenDiary because a friend wanted me to read her journal there, but it is down *again* for the 3rd time in a week and for 3 days this time. That's a lot of downtime, yo.

I had a bit of a breakdown yesterday. Between it being the month-i-versary of Grandpa's death, the news of E's work, the friends telling me my worries were invalid and paranoid, the other deaths in my life and in the lives of my friends...it's been a year, and yesterday was a Day. I feel better for it, though, and I think it woke my sleepy husband from his game-playing stupor. Hopefully we continue on that trend for a while.

Anyway...I need to go to bed now, but I wanted to at least write that little bit. Hi again, LJ. Nice to see you.

I, too, am perplexed about how Giuliani ended up at the top of my Republican matches. ~_~ I'm not at all surprised to see Kucinich and Edwards and Gravel at the top of my list.

Peace and love.

I just want to offer my prayers and good wishes for a happier 2008 for everyone. If you had a pretty happy 2007, then I hope your 2008 is even better. And if your 2007 was crappy or only okay--then I hope things look up in 2008.

Peace and love.

So, there's a movement afoot right now called 40 Days for Life. It's purpose is to bring about the end of abortion via things like protests and prayer.

While I do agree that it would be nice to live in a world where abortion isn't necessary as an option, I don't think we're ever going to make it to that perfect of a world. Too many women are raped; too many women without adequate resources find themselves pregnant; too many uneducated men and women don't take the correct precautions when having sex, regardless of whether they're married or not; too many people object to giving birth themselves under any circumstances due to beliefs about things like the environment and overpopulation; and so on. No two situations are completely identical, and sometimes things like adoption are just not an option (for example, medical reasons for terminating a pregnancy).

So, I would like to alert everyone to I Am Emily X, a blog of a Planned Parenthood worker and activist. She's blogging about her experiences during these 40 days. And on her sidebar, she has a link one can click to thank the workers at one's local Planned Parenthood. I urge you all to do so; too often, these workers suffer through picketing and protests and all kinds of negative attention (with some workers even being followed to their homes and harassed there!!). Too often, they do not feel the gratitude of the community they've served past the point where the service was given. If you've ever used contraceptives or considered abortion or had use of one of PP's other services, or even if you just know someone who has, or even if you are just grateful for the work PP has done for women's reproductive and sexual choices, health, and freedom, please send them a note of gratitude. It doesn't take very much time and can be completed on the computer via the internet.

And think about this: wouldn't you find it really cool to come into work some day and find your desk covered with thank-you notes? I think we'd all enjoy that. So brighten someone else's day--thank your local Planned Parenthood workers. :)

Peace and love.
