Thank you to everybody who posts about what they've been doing for activism. It helps me to keep going.

I'm proud of myself that I've made several calls to representatives over the past month, but it's all been to voicemail. It's hard for me to make any personal calls during the day. I worry that the messages are just being deleted but it's all I can do with making calls for now. I was able to make four this morning about Bannon--three to my Congressmen and one to the Senate Committee for Homeland Security. I really do feel glad for doing that but I wish it was more.

I started donating money each month since November. It's only a little but I'm always so scared about spending money after the times when I was just getting by or having to dip into my savings each month. I tell myself I need to be ready for a (metaphorical) marathon but I still feel guilty.

I have a family gathering this weekend. I want to see my relatives but I've been worrying for the past few days that somebody's going to start talking about politics because if they do, it's likely to be supportive of Trump. And I'll just have to seethe through it and keep myself together for the several-hours drive home. Really hoping that doesn't happen.

I think it's great that you're doing that! And I think it's okay if all of us are doing as many small things as we can manage, because all those small things add up to something magnificent when you put them together.
