Charmion, we cross posted earlier—muffins and computers and to-do lists sound trite when compared to the weight of the atrocity of dead school children buried under school grounds (instead of respectfully sending them home after a full investigation after the first one and it never happening again, they kept doing it. People around them knew better and needed to speak up.)

The impact of Trump is being felt in the political life of the nation right now - his company getting a slap on the wrist for tax evasion is a shiny object in comparison to lighting a fire under Manchion and Sinema and getting some important work done.

Moving forward to work on supporting important causes means you need to have a clear head in order to do so. I have administrative and employment activity to tend to, but otherwise I'm planning to spend the next few days mostly offline. Clear up papers, files, and workspaces and set a few priorities regarding the individuals and groups I want to support that can have impact on the causes important to me. (To this end I recently joined the Southern Poverty Law Center and have renewed with ACLU and NAACP.) If you're too depressed by the state of current events to do anything to help, take a break. Get back in the fight when you can.
