America is breaking.

To be fair, our country was built on the backs of black slaves and through the genocide of Native Americans, so in a sense it’s always been broken.

But this….this.

These times.

Our government has been shut down because extremists don’t want everyone to have access to health care.

An unarmed woman was killed by police in Washington, D.C. when she drove through a security barrier. Her 18-month old daughter survived.

A man set himself on fire on the National Mall.

How do we make sense of all this trauma?

It feels like we’re falling apart.
