Stumps
Stumps

I am stumped.  I am stumped by appeasement.  I am stumped by denial.  I am stumped by false equivalences.  I am stumped by lies.  I am stumped by false notions of fairness.  I am stumped by the entire concept of “honor.”  I am stumped by the idea that any change is good.  I am stumped by disrespect.  I am stumped by mysogyny.  I am stumped by evil masquerading as righteousness.  I am stumped by absolutism.  I am stumped by racism.  I am stumped by exclusiveness.  I am stumped by lack of empathy.  I am stumped by deliberate ignorance.  I am stumped by cultural elitism.  I am stumped by hollow words.  I am stumped by misdirection.  I am stumped by shady business dealings.  I am stumped by “everyone does it.”  I am stumped by rejection of civility.  I am stumped by excuses.  I am stumped by the lack of moral integrity in “leadership.”  I am stumped by the number of people who I dearly hope have trouble looking at themselves in the mirror every day.  I am stumped by people who should be ashamed of themselves.  I am stumped by how we don’t learn from history.  I am stumped by how we don’t learn from today.  I am stumped by glossing over.  I am stumped by “everyone thinks that, but he says it!”

I am stumped by war, hunger, suffering.  We have the resources and skills to alleviate it.  We do not, apparently, have the will.

I am so stumped.
