Sometimes a parent or a teacher pauses in the midst of confrontation or difficulty and says,
I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.
Well, folks, today I’m just mad.
I’m mad at people who don’t care about how others are treated because it doesn’t impact them personally.
I’m mad at people who hold forth online with only a tiny shred of information and a whole bunch of opinion. And call it fact.
I’m mad at ignorance, willful ignorance which is fueled by selfishness. Or mean spiritedness. Or racism. Or all three.
I’m mad that all of this is right here where I live in Columbia/Howard County.
Tomorrow I will get back to the work of this blog. Today, I am just...mad.
