All I ever take away from any of these posts is that until it’s done away with, anyone subject to this long-form torture can never live a full life, unfettered by the specter of the gun. I am also on this never-ending(for me) torture wheel, and everything I do now has been fully shaped around it, molded by it. I can’t drive by a school, walk by a park, or take a leak in the woods without wondering if I’ll be arrested in the next few days. My privacy is violated on a constant and un-ending basis. We need change. We’ve -needed- change. And for most of us, those who are planted all-too-firmly in reality, don’t see any light in this tunnel, let alone an end to it.
