Sometimes the things that make me angry also make me feel helpless. Like, I can’t change the number of people sleeping outside in the winter. I can’t make the world treat minorities equally. I can’t make a CEO ask himself why he thinks he should earn 365x what his employees earn. So I write, because it’s the only thing I can do. And even when I do, I know it mostly falls on deaf ears, but I keep hoping if enough people write about the same things, maybe eventually some of those ugly things might start to change.
