1) A friend of various friends ([personal profile] tam_nonlinear / [tumblr.com profile] tam-nonlinear) killed herself Wednesday in despair over the idea of losing her health insurance.

2) On Monday, one of SteelyKid's third-grade classmates told another classmate that they wanted Trump to win because black people and women would have to leave the state. I talked to a parent of the classmate last night, who said they hadn't slept since.

I can't think of anything to add to this. Just, these things that I personally know of actually happened, and I needed to bear witness.

Witnessing.

I have just gathered the two posts [personal profile] tam_nonlinear made of brownie recipes (which have been missing illustrative photographs for a while) and pulled them together with notes about the info needed to make them. The post is public, for anyone who wants the recipe.

It gives me pause to consider the levels of grief and despair she must have felt. My sympathies to her family and friends.
