The Last Week

Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 8.20.03 AM

I struggle to write anything in these few days before the Trump presidency begins. I’m afraid for the women who will march in Washington, as I safely march in Toronto and as so many others will march in 370 cities around the world. Tyranny must always be resisted, but such resistance always ends in blood. Could this be the fuse that lights Trump’s Reichstag fire? Surely it won’t take much.

Two other writers offer better insight, so here they are. This is an eloquent New Yorker piece by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, calling on people to resist. And while he inexplicably fails to mention Trump’s misogyny in his analysis, Jonathan Kirshner’s America, America is chillingly apropos.

I hope we are all very wrong.

  6. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
