    “On June 7, we lost our father, Jose, and a month later, we lost our mother, Maria. My mother had been in the hospital for three weeks and after a short battle in the ICU, due to pneumonia and heart failure, she did not make it.

    Times have been very tough in the past few weeks, after losing our father, and now our mother, we once again ask for your kindness in raising funds to give her a proper burial. We understand COVID-19 has hit many families hard but anything donated would be very appreciated and a simple share can go a long way.

    El 7 de Junio 2020, perdimos a nuestro padre, José, y un mes después, perdimos a nuestra madre, María. Mi madre había estado en el hospital durante tres semanas y después de una breve batalla en la UCI, debido a neumonía e insuficiencia cardíaca, desafortunadamente perdio estas batallas hoy en la madrugada.

    Los tiempos han sido muy difíciles en las últimas semanas, después de perder a nuestro padre y ahora a nuestra madre en tan poco tiempo, una vez más les pedimos su amabilidad para recaudar fondos para darle un entierro adecuado. Entendemos que COVID-19 ha afectado mucho a muchas familias, pero cualquier cosa donada sería muy apreciada y una simple publicacion de este enlance puede ser muy útil y ayudarnos enormamente.”

    how INSANELY fucking funny would it be if 48 hours before the election this year both joe biden and donald trump inexplicably at the same time just dropped dead. like it was just their time to go. their half-corpse bodies had just had enough of this shit and they both just gave out. i think that would be the tipping point that would destroy america once and for all

    I speak English.

    I live in Japan and only speak English, and maybe 20 Japanese phrases.

    I grew up in a world of “go back to where you came from. This is America. We speak English here.”

    Not once has any individual in Japan told me, “This is Japan. We speak Japanese. Go back to where you came from.” Not one time.

    Individuals give up their seats in waiting rooms, on trains, or on busses here when they see me pregnant or carrying my children. No words, just a simple standing and gesturing for me to sit in their place.

    I can barely thank them in their native language.

    Masks were worn here before a global pandemic ever surfaced. Before Covid-19 was circulating rampantly, the Japanese people wore masks to protect their communities.

    Not themselves.

    Me.

    They didn’t want ME to get their sniffles, and they expect me to not want to give them mine.

    It’s not political. It’s not an infringement of rights. It’s a matter of, “Maybe it’s just allergies, but I dont know that for sure, so I wear a mask to keep from spitting on you when I speak.”

    Freedom is a beautiful thing, yes.

    But collectivism isn’t a threat to freedom, y'all.

    Caring about someone else’s reality doesn’t make you weak, and for the love of God it doesn’t make you a “sheeple.”

    Community is a beautiful thing.

    So is compassion.

    So is empathy.

    I love my country dearly, hear that. But in so many ways, I KNOW we can do better.
